Plastic Deformation of Metals program is to prepare students for careers in Engineering where Principles of Mechanical Metallurgy of metals can be applied to the Industries dealing with Metal forming operations. This education at the undergraduate level will enable students to seek employment in Metal Industries upon graduation while, at the same time, provide a firm foundation for the pursuit of graduate studies in Metallurgy Engineering.

Course Outcome

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

  1. Know about Elastic and plastic deformation of metallic materials
  2. Understand effect of deformation behaviour of ductile & brittle material.
  3. Able to understand various strengthening methods of metals & alloys.
  4. Recognise the microstructural and property changes during stages of Annealing.

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.
