B.Tech. (Metallurgical and Materials Engineering)
Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
- Graduates will have a thorough knowledge of the key principles and practices in the field of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering and will have applied their materials development skills and knowledge of foundation principles to the design and implementation of practical systems.
- Graduates will be successfully employed in the core field of Metallurgical and Materials industry and will be actively engaged in learning, understanding and applying new ideas and technologies as the field evolves; or will have successfully completed, or is actively pursuing, graduate studies in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
- To impart science-based engineering education to develop professional skills that will prepare the students for immediate employment in the Metallurgical and Materials branch of engineering in industry, as against the model that just prepares them for post-graduate education.
- To develop the design capability among students so that they have the ability to participate in creative, synthetic and integrative activities in the field of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
- To develop among students breadth of knowledge so that they have familiarity with many important technical areas in other branches of engineering and, in-depth knowledge of one or more specializations to cater industry and research.
- To develop communication skills so that the students are able to express ideas clearly and persuasively, in written and oral forms.
- To develop among students the awareness of, and the competence to be savvy users of information technology.
- To develop the ability to design and perform experiments in the field of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, and to acquire the ability to interpret and evaluate experimental results.
- To develop among students the ability to work with others, in professional and social settings with curiosity, desire and ability to keep learning through life. Also, to develop an understanding among students of the human, social and business context in which they will utilize their engineering skills.
- To develop a global view among students so that they can appreciate diversity in the world and in intellectual pursuits.
Programme Outcomes (POs)
