The students should have a clear concept on basic chemistry, geology and Mineralogy that will help them to have an easy grasp of the subject.Studied subject GC-01 (Introduction to Glass & Ceramic Technology-I).


The main objective of this subject is to offer an overview over the fundamentals and basics of glass and ceramic materials, the raw materials, their availability, their properties, their beneficiation processes, process of recovery. Also, the students should have an overview over basic geology and Mineralogy so that they can understand the genesis of various raw materials being used in Glass and Ceramic products.

Course Outcome
  1. To express their technical knowledge over fundamentals of the subject
  2. To choose batch composition for different glasses and ceramic products.
  3. To be able to utilize their knowledge and skills for the preparation of other related highly technical subjects in the Glass & Ceramic Technology course curriculum
  4. To be able to apply this knowledge in their higher study, researchwork with related technical subjects.
  5. To build a bridge between theoretical and practical concept used in industry

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.
