A post-graduate programme in Industrial Metallurgy was introduced in the year 1983 with an intake of 10 students. This programme offers in depth knowledge about Physical Metallurgy, Extractive Metallurgy (Design & production of Iron & Steel), Manufacturing Technologies (Metal Casting, Metal Forming, Powder Metallurgy and Welding), Mechanical Metallurgy (includes Material Testing – Destructive and Non-Destructive), Corrosion Engineering, and Materials Characterization Techniques etc. In view of the increasing demand in materials development, the department has introduced new subjects in its curriculum with materials background in the year 2004. The students are exposed to core and advanced areas in the first two semesters. Dissertation work is being carried out in the third and fourth semesters.
