Why study Metallurgy?

Modern industry is dependent on the knowledge of metallurgy. Nearly every kind of manufacturing today is affected by the behavior of metals and alloys.


The study of metallurgy actually explores what makes metals behave the way they do. This exploring is done by metallurgists, scientists who probe deeply

Fundamental Concepts

Each atom consists of a very small nucleus composed of protons and neutrons, which is encircled by moving electrons. Charge on sub-atomic particles Electrons

Structure and Property

Structure The structure of a material usually relates to the arrangement of its internal components. It can be studied on three levels: Subatomic structure

Classification of Materials

Common engineering materials that come within the scope of Material Science may be classified broadly into the following three types:- Metals (Ferrous and Non-Ferrous)
