Metallurgical Engineering


B.Tech in Metallurgical Engineering Course Details

The field of metallurgical Engineering deals with the production of metals from their ores and making of metallic components via various processes. Fundamental knowledge in materials science related to processing, tailoring the properties, structure-properties relations is shared with students. The properties, performance, and functionality of materials are improved based on metallurgy and materials science investigations. This study contributes to improving the quality of life by developing materials with excellent properties, high performance, and various functionality. Metallurgical Engineering is an essential branch of engineering that deals with studying the chemical and physical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic mixtures, and their alloys.

At Indus University, we offer one of the best Metallurgical Engineering Colleges in Gujarat. The Department of Metallurgical Engineering started in the year 2006 offering a bachelor's degree in metallurgical engineering(B.Tech) and master's 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.

How B.Tech Metallurgical Engineering Course Benefits

The Department of Metallurgical Engineering is dedicated to educate students in designing, producing components, and developing fundamental understanding of materials by establishing the relationships between processing parameters, structure, properties, and performance of components for various applications.

In addition, the program also covers innovative methods to produce nanostructured and amorphous metals with excellent properties. In 2024, the department achieved 100% placement for our students. Some major companies that visit us for campus placement of our students are: ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India, Isgec Hitachi Zosen Ltd., Saarloha, Godrej, Welspun, Ratnamani, Tata Engineering Services, Tata Refractories etc., with a pay package in the range of 4.5–6.77 lakhs per year. Our graduates successfully secured admission in reputed universities in the USA, Canada, and Germany, U.K., and Australia.

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.

Metallurgical Engineers are in massive demand due to their necessity in every field that produces, buys, sells, purifies or manufactures metallurgic developments. The metallurgical engineer can also get positioned in different research programs or public and government sectors where they are offered a decent remuneration.

The practical knowledge acquired during the course makes its students ready to work in real work situations accordingly and the course also delivers many career opportunities. Some of the major career options to choose from after completion of the course include:

  1. Production Engineer 
  2. Metallurgist
  3. Geotechnical Engineer
  4. Product development manager
  5. Corrosion Engineer

The Training & Placement Department (T & P Dept.) at Indus University has a separate team that bridges two essential ends: academia and industry. It demonstrates a link between educational institutions, university departments, and businesses.
