WHAT IS CHEMICAL CERAMIC TECHNOLOGY ?
UG: Candidates must have passed 10+2 with minimum qualifying marks in aggregate with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics as core subjects. Independent entrance tests for this program are also held by the various state, central, and private universities which mostly require 50% as the prerequisite to appear for the test.
PG: Candidates must hold a degree in Bachelor of Engineering/B.Tech in Polymer Engineering or allied subjects along with a good score in entrance tests held for PG program held by the various state, central, and private universities. Candidates with an MSc degree in Chemistry are also eligible for the M.Tech program in Chemical Ceramic Technology.
SCOPE OF CHEMICAL CERAMIC TECHNOLOGY
- Research: In the research field, the main work of Ceramic technologists involves the study and application of chemical and thermal interactions of oxides, which make ceramics.
- Design: Ceramic engineers design the kilns and other equipment used in manufacturing as well as direct the crew that build the plants and operate the kilns.
- Production: In the glass industry, their work involves the manufacture of tableware, fibre optics, bulbs, windowpanes, and electronics ancillaries. Ceramic engineers in the electronics sector, manufacture integrated circuits, sensors etc.
- Testing: Ceramic engineers are responsible for testing the quality of raw materials and samples prepared for production in the testing laboratories.
