The department of "Metallurgical and Materials Engineering"
(earlier known as the Department of Metallurgical Engineering) was
established in the year 1963. It conducts a four (04) years
under-graduate academic programme leading to the award of B.Tech. Degree in "Metallurgical & Materials Engineering". At present, the sanctioned intake strength of students at B.Tech. level is 59
per year. The "Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Professional
Eduacation" starts at the second year (3rd Semester) level of the
B.Tech. programme.The engineering programme is based on the credit
system and the student evaluation is done on the performance of the
student in three written examinations being conducted in each
subject/course during the semester at a definite interval of the time
period. Based on the performance in the examinations and in the class,
the students are awarded grades on absolute basis.The curriculum of
B.Tech. programme includes compulsory industrial training of 4-6 weeks

in and or outside the states. A two Semester "Project Work" is given to the students to synthesize their knowledge in relevant areas of engineering.
The department has adequate laboratory facilities to conduct
experiments for the undergraduate students in various courses of the
engineering curriculum. The department has qualified faculty and the
expertise available includes disciplines VIZ. Foundry Tech., Materials
Technology, Corrosion Engineering, Welding Technology, Physical Met.,
Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metallurgy, Non-destructive Testing and
Evaluation etc. Apart from teaching, the department is engaged in a wide
range of activities covering research and development, testing and
consultancy, curricular and faculty development.
At present, Prof.(Dr.) D.M. Afzal Khan is the Head of the Department.
The department aims to produce technocrats who possess besides
