B.Tech. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering

Why take this course?

There will be no progress in any field of Engineering and Technology, be it Electronics, Biomedical, Nuclear, Aeronautics, Space, Energy, Civil, Transportation, Construction, etc., without the active participation and engagement of Materials Engineers. Therefore, every modern industry needs to employ and engage Materials Engineers for its survival and progress. The Metallurgical and Materials Engineering program at
Jain (Deemed-to-be University) is a unique graduate program designed to study the production, design, characterization, and application of materials. Materials Engineers are responsible for the specification, research, design, and development of materials to meet the challenges of advanced technologies and applications of many kinds. New technologies are critically dependent on the understanding and manipulation of materials properties. Some examples where Materials Engineers have been contributing significantly to the progress of technology are: bio-compatible prosthetics and targeted drug delivery; design of more energy-efficient and lightweight automobiles; cost-effective production of energy from alternative sources etc.

What will I experience?
