M. Tech in Metallurgical Engineering



M.Tech in Metallurgical Engineering Course details

Metallurgical Engineering (M.Tech) is a master's degree which deals with various metals and their products. Students are trained in investigating the performances of metals and using them to produce valuable products. They have been equipped with the concepts of metallic elements, physical and chemical behaviour. Metallurgical engineering can be divided into extractive metallurgy, physical metallurgy, and mineral processing. Physical metallurgy needs issue solving analysis. A metallurgical engineer arranges the metallic mixtures required or needed for different manufacturing and building works. Another arm of metallurgy is extractive metallurgy, which includes extracting alloys from their gold.

At Indus University, we are one of the best Metallurgical Engineering College in Gujarat. The Department of Metallurgical Engineering started in the year 2006 offering a Bachelor's Degree in Metallurgical Engineering( and Master Degree in Metallurgical Engineering. As the top Metallurgical engineering college in Ahmedabad Gujarat, the Department has highly skilled and experienced faculty members specializing in different advanced fields.

25% of the sanctioned strength of Management & NRI quota will be filled up on the basis of merit as per the eligibility criteria decided by AICTE & Gujarat State Government and procedure laid down by ACPC.


The eligibility criteria are a minimum of 50% marks in B.E./B.Tech with the qualifying GATE Score or State level entrance exam for M.E./M.Tech.

Engineering proficiency: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to solve complex engineering issues.

Analysis: Formulate, Identity, review research writings, and analyze complex engineering issues reaching verified findings using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering.

Design & development solutions: Design solutions for complicated engineering problems and design system elements or methods that meet the identified needs, considering safety issues and cultural and environmental concerns properly.

Sustainability and Environment: Understand the effect of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and exemplify the understanding of and need for endurable development.

Individual and teamwork: Function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse teams and multidisciplinary settings.

Communication: Communicate on complicated engineering exercises with the engineering community and society at extensive, such as understanding and documenting effective reports and design documentation to make effective presentations and receive clear instructions.

Project management: Display details and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one's own assignment as a member and leader in a team to work on projects and in multidisciplinary backgrounds.

The Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering imparts formal education in the field of materials and metallurgical engineering along with hands-on practice. The Department is equipped with sophisticated instruments such as an image analysis system, metallurgical microscope, spectrometer, complete foundry sand testing facility, mineral processing equipment, induction melting unit and heat treatment furnaces. 

Foundry and Welding Lab

The foundry laboratory is equipped with all foundry sand testing equipment. Hands-on practice on foundry technology is provided through "Indus Foundry Training and Research Centre" (IFTARC). The Welding Laboratory is housed with T.I.G. and M.I.G. welding facility for metal joining processes.

Non-Destructive Testing and Corrosion Lab

This Laboratory is equipped with basic Non–Destructive Testing (NDT) equipment for testing such as liquid penetrant testing (LPT), magnetic particle testing (MPT) and ultrasonic testing (UT). The students carry out experiments using this equipment. Corrosion experiments are performed relating to deposition by electrolytic method and dissolution under various electrolytes.

Heat Treatment and Physical Metallurgy Lab

Microstructural study of various metals and alloys, including the determination of volume fractions of phases and their distribution, are carried out by the UG and PG students using microscopes and image analysis system, and facility of furnaces for the heat treatment of metals and alloys under controlled atmosphere are available in this Laboratory.

Process Metallurgy Lab

Mineral dressing and mineral processing are two crucial components in process metallurgy. Its Laboratory is equipped with mineral dressing equipment such as jaw crusher, roll crusher, ball mill, sieve shaker, and floatation cell. With regard to mineral processing, drier, mixer, pelletizer and sintering/firing units are available.

Over the last few years, development in the field of metallurgy and materials engineering has found wide application in space technology, nuclear technology, superconductivity and high-temperature technology.

A graduate in Process Metallurgy can work with metallurgical process plants, manufacturing industries, nuclear and research establishments and space research organizations.

After completing this program, our students will be very well suited to serve in both the industrial and service sectors.
