B.Tech in Cement Engineering is the science of creating objects from inorganic and non-metallic objects using heat, lowering temperatures etc. Studies relating to purification of raw materials, production of chemical compounds and their formation into components and their structure, composition and properties are part of the programme. B.Tech in Cement Engineering is a four-year program. The curriculum includes courses like Materials Thermodynamics; Raw Materials Analysis; Ceramic Processing; Drawing of Refractory Lining and Joints; Ceramic Fabrication; Ceramic Equipment Design; Sensor Technology; Electrical and Magnetic Ceramics; and Pollution & Waste Management in Ceramic Industry. One can pursue an M.Tech in Ceramics and Cement Engineering after successful completion of B.Tech. Graduates and postgraduates develop procedures for processing non-metallic inorganic materials into various ceramic products such as fiber optic products, glassware, coatings for space vehicles, and components of nuclear fuel. They are also involved in research, product development, and production engineering of ceramic products that are in compliance with the required quality norms. Specialized engineers develop advanced heat tiles for space shuttles and supersonic space planes. They also help in developing such materials that enclose and support aircraft engines functioning at high temperatures.
A candidate must have passed Bachelor's Degree in Engineering/Technology (B.Tech/B.E) from any recognized university in the concerned discipline.
