M.Tech Industrial Metallurgy Course Details

The aim of Master of Technology (M.Tech.) in Industrial Metallurgy is to advance student’s comprehension of the fundamental concepts used in the field of Industrial Metallurgy. The curriculum was developed to cater the needs of manufacturing industries and R&D institutions. It is a 2-year program (i.e. four semesters). Students take 12 courses relevant to metal industries in the first year and the second year is fully dedicated to project work. Students pursuing M.Tech. in Industrial Metallurgy learn about metallurgical procedures and metal design. Students in this field are qualified to work for Mineral Processing Industries, Manufacturing Industries, and Research Institutes. In addition, they can pursue Ph.D. courses and further advance their knowledge.

Admission Process

The Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) will admit students based on merit on 50% of the sanctioned strength for each course. The student needs to register himself with ACPC after the result.

50% of seats of the sanctioned strength of each course are Management Quota, admission of which is handled by the institute as per guidelines of ACPC.

Eligibility Criteria

The B.Tech degree in any engineering discipline from a recognized institution, with a minimum of 50% marks or an equivalent CGPA, is the minimum eligibility requirement needed to follow the course. GATE scores are used to determine admission to the best engineering school in this area.

The Objective of the Course

  1. To learn about the advances in various metallurgical processes including steel making, foundry engineering, surface engineering, metal forming etc.
  2. To develop a deep understanding between the correlation of solidification, crystallographic structure, and structure-properties of advanced materials such high entropy alloy, bulk metallic glass, superalloy, high strength alloy etc.
  3. To learn the basics of failure analysis and the ways to mitigate problems in metal industries.
  4. To familiarize with Industry standards and essential non-technical industry needs such as costing.
