Knowledge of Basic Metallurgy and common Engineering Materials
Materials have an important role in every field of engineering. The materials we use and how we make them can determine the function, feasibility, cost, environmental impact and many other aspects of things we create. Advanced Materials are the materials used in "High-Tec" applications, usually designed for maximum performance. Examples are titanium alloys for supersonic airplanes, magnetic alloys for computer disks, special ceramics for the heat shield of the space shuttle, etc. Metallurgy engineers design new materials, select the best material for a particular job, monitor its performance and figure out why a material failed and bring expertise on the properties of materials. To do this, Metallurgy engineers need to understand that how materials are made, its structure/composition, how and why materials are useful, what is the limit of materials and how materials can be made better or create a new material that will have some desirable properties. The Advanced Materials course is to prepare students for careers in metallurgy engineering where knowledge of Properties and applications of different Advanced Materials can be applied for the selection of candidate material for a given task. This course will enable students to solve metallurgical problems upon graduation while at the same time, provide a firm foundation for the pursuit of graduate studies in metallurgy engineering.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to
1. Explain various steels with their composition, advantages, limitations and application.
2. Select and compare different steel for a given metallurgical application.
3. Describe different alloy cast irons.
4. Explain the use of different types of light metal and their alloys with metallurgical aspects.
5. Explain different Super Alloys with their strengthening mechanism, composition properties and applications.
6. Explain technique to producing metallic glass.
7. Describe properties and applications of Nano materials.
8. Explain different smart material with their application.
9. Explain requirements of biomaterials and suggest a biomaterial for a given application.

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.
