Rationale
Beginning from the minerals and ores from which the metals are extracted at each and every stage of metal processing, chemical composition needs to be ascertained so as to establish the requisite quality and process control. A Diploma engineer pass out is expected to work at supervisory level in various production units. Therefore a diploma engineering student must be conversant with chemical analysis techniques of metals and alloys. This course aims to equip the student with the knowledge of various c o n v e n t i o n a l a n d m o d e r n metallurgical analysis techniques needed to establish the composition of metals and alloys as prevalent in industry.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Compare the conventional and modern methods of quantitative analysis
ii. Explain sampling of ores, and metals.
iii. Select the relevant conventional method for analysis for different metals and alloys.
iv. Enumerate the advantages and limitations of modern methods of analysis.
