Course gives idea about the behavioral properties of various materials. Also internal structure and its relation to material’s property are established in this subject. Subject is also useful for proper materials selection for various engineering applications

Course Outcome

After successful completion of the course the students shall be able to:

  1. Material Science & Metallurgy enhance the understandings of the students regarding the relationship between crystal structure, material properties and its fabrication process. The subject provides the information of the different properties of materials like, mechanical, thermal, optical, magnetic, Technological, etc
  2. It also provides the knowledge regarding solidification of the metals & alloys and their phase transformation.
  3. It also provides the exposure to students about different NDT methods.
  4. It provides the knowledge of Heat treatment with material and powder metallurgy for enhancing the required properties in the material.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
