Metallurgical and Materials Engineering is a process where you convert raw materials — chemical properties from different metals — into useful products. This is a multi-disciplinary subject and encompasses study of latest technologies and processes that have evolved over the years. You can pursue BTech, MTech and PhD in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. Some modules include Thermodynamics of Engineering Materials, Materials Characterisation, Micro/Nano Fabrication Techniques, Elements of Physical Metallurgy, Machinery and Testing. Once you complete this course, you can be a Production Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer or a Application Engineer.

National Institute of Technologys

NIT Tiruchy, Durgapur, Srinagar, Warangal and Rourkela, offer BTech and MTech in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. BTech is a four-year course and you will have four-six weeks of industrial training after your fifth semester. Some modules include Instrumental Methods of Metallurgical and Materials, Basics in Electrical, Electronics and Mechanical Engineering.
