A highly specialised subset of materials science and engineering that is concerned with the study of the physical and chemical behaviour of metallic elements, inter-metallic compounds and alloys is called metallurgy. This specialisation deals with science used to separate metals from their ore and the technology applied to engineer metallic components for specific uses. Metallurgy […]
The science and technology of creation of objects from non-metallic and inorganic materials is referred to as ceramic engineering. The process involves either the use of heat or as a result of precipitation reactions of pure chemical solutions at lower temperatures. It also involves raw material purification, analysis and fabrication of the concerned chemical compounds […]
Mining engineering refers to a specialised field of engineering where science and technology is applied to extract minerals from the earth. Mining engineers may be involved in any part of the mining process—from exploration of mineral resources and conducting feasibility studies, to designing mines, outlining plans, production, operations and even mine closure. Mining areas are […]
Engineering physics emphasises on the importance of research and development, and has a novel approach to the sciences; it prepares students to tackle the engineering challenges of the 21st century by application of the concepts in physics. A degree in this field is ideal for those looking to pursue research and development in engineering.
Because it’s the perfect mix of mechanical, electric and electronic and computer engineering! Marine engineers are a key support system in the fields of naval defence, environmental research and underwater extraction of resources. They are meant for most equipment-related technology that has association with oceanography.
The role of a mechanical engineer has significance in several industries, including automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, computers and electronics, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), energy conversion, environmental control and automation. Because of that it becomes a stepping stone for other specializations, should a person look into that direction. As such in the field of mechanical engineering, these are […]
Mechanical engineering is a broad discipline that applies the principles of engineering to the design, working, manufacturing and maintaining of machines and their parts. Mechanical engineering plays a central role in such industries as automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, computers and electronics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), energy conversion, environmental control, automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control). […]
Industrial engineering deals with making the most out of complex processes, systems and organisations. This is done by the means of understanding, improving and executing integrated systems of personnel, money, knowledge, equipment, information, energy and materials. Intervention by an industrial engineer ensures efficient use of time, money, energy and other resources. It is commonly mistaken to […]
Come the end of March, all students appearing for their Class 12 examination would be relieved—school life is over. However, there is one burning question that is always at the back of their minds: what to do after Class 12. This creates stronger anxiety for those who have picked up the science stream, with any […]
Electrical engineering, one of the core branches of the engineering discipline, deals with the study, design, and application of equipment, devices, and systems that use electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Electrical engineers work with all kinds of electronic devices, from the smallest pocket devices to large supercomputers. They develop and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment […]
