Why Study Materials Science and Metallurgy?

Evolution and advancement of human civilization have always been prompted by the development of new materials. At each and every stages of human development any kind of application has been elevated only by pursuing relentless effort to develop and upgrade the material. When a material seemed to have given the best of it, finding the next generation of material has always been the biggest concern for the scientists and engineers. Following this never-ending relentless pursuit of the best material, the world now has entered into the age of science and technology where materials are now being handled at nano-scale level which has laid the ground for new possibilities for future.

Why Choose Us

Welcome to the World of Materials !

The field Materials and Metallurgical Engineering is related to the science and engineering that involves the discovery and design of materials, with an emphasis on solids.

Our world is a materials world. We name civilisation eras by the materials that define them. Think what will happen to our current civilisation if I vanish by magic all the three big S’s (i.e., steels, silicon and soil) from the world!

New materials have been among the greatest achievements of every age and they have been central to the growth, prosperity, security, and quality of life of humans since the beginning of history. It is always new materials that open the door to new technologies, whether they are in civil, chemical, construction, nuclear, aeronautical, agricultural, mechanical, biomedical or electrical engineering.

Materials scientists and engineers are at the very centre of imagining and delivering progress and fulfilling both our basic needs and the most exotic dreams….
