Programs

  • UG Programs
    B.Tech. Ceramic Engineering Programme is a 4-Year engineering Degree programme to educate and train the persons in the discipline of Ceramic and Glass science and technology. The programme consists of Institute Science and Engineering Courses, which are foundation of Engineering Education. Show(+) A significant number of core and elective courses are offered to the students during the programme, which cover most of the traditional (Glass, Cement, pottery and whitewares, Refractories, Abrasives, Coatings etc) as well as advanced (Bio-Ceramics, Electro-Ceramics, Engineering Ceramics, Composites etc,) areas of the ceramic and Glass Technology.The programme flexibility gives ample opportunity to study many open elective of other engineering disciplines, Humanities and Management Courses. The students may opt to study along a speciified stream with a combination of project work and courses. Hide(-)
  • PG Programs​
    Integrated Dual Degree (IDD). Ceramic Engineering Programme is a 5-Year engineering Degree programme to educate and train the persons in the discipline of Ceramic and Glass science and technology with the award of both B. Tech. & M. Tech. Degrees. The programme consists of Institute Science and Engineering Courses, which are foundation of Engineering Education. Show(+) A significant number of basic and advanced core and elective (UG & PG) courses are offered to the students during the programme, which cover most of the traditional (Glass, Cement, pottery and whitewares, Refractories, Abrasives, Coatings etc) as well as advanced (Bio-Ceramics, Electro-Ceramics, Engineering Ceramics, Composites etc,) areas of the ceramic and Glass Technology.The programme flexibility gives ample opportunity to study many open elective of other engineering disciplines, Humanities and Management Courses. The students may opt to study along a speciified stream with a combination of project work and courses. The students work on the research and development project for their Masters Thesis during last two years of the programme. The students who qualify GATE are awarded Institute TAship during 5th year similar to M. Tech. students. Hide(-)

Specializations:
  • Glass and Glass Ceramics
    Work is in progress for the development of special coloured glasses, infrared filter glasses suitable for night vision and high density radiation shield glasses. Stains for sheet glasses with copper and silver and heat resistant coating on glasses are being developed. Studies on different micronutrient glasses have been carried out for their suitable application in agriculture for different soil conditions.  Click for details...
  • RefractoriesSintering and micro-structural studies of refractory oxides like Al2O3, ZrO2, Mgo, Cr2O3 etc. are carried out to attain the maximum sintered densities and desirable microstructure so that optimum refractory properties are obtained in the end product. , Click for details...
  • Electrical and Electronic Ceramics
    Valence compensated solid solution systems of the type A1-xAx'B1-xB'xO3 show interesting electrical and dielectric properties. Valence compensated perovskites are formed by substituting the cations at A and B site with heterovalent cations in equivalent amounts to maintain electrical charge neutrality and to reduce the electrical strains in the crystal structure.   Click for details...
  • Cement and Advanced Building Materials
    Portland cement concrete lands itself to a variety of innovative designs as a result of its many desirable properties. Concrete inherently is brittle and weak in tension. Several methods have been developed to impart ductile behavior. Broadly these can be grouped as mechanical and chemical methods. Click for details
  • Bio-glass and Ceramics
    During the last two decades ceramic materials have become widely used in many medical applications, hip prosthesis, cardiac valves and dental implants. Hydroxyapatite (Hap) seems to be the most appropriate ceramic material for artificial teeth or bones due to excellent biocompatibility and bioactivity.. Click for details

Historical Background

The founder of Banaras Hindu University, Pandit Madan Mohan Malviyaji instituted a course in Ceramic Technology as early as 1924 with the noble objective of advancing glass and ceramic technology in India. Show(+) In the Year 1956, Department of Glass Technology and Department of Ceramic Technology were merged to form the Department of Silicate Technology, offering a four year degree course by injecting into its curriculum balanced engineering and scientific contents. In the year 1968 the Department was renamed as Department of Ceramic Engineering. Presently this department is unique in the country which offers B.Tech., M.Tech. and Ph.D. Programmes in the areas of Ceramic Engineering and Technology. The Department has so far produced more than 1000 graduates, 100 postgraduates and 30 Ph.Ds.
The Department is pursuing active research in the emerging areas of glass, glass ceramics, refractories, electronic ceramic, cement and pottery & porcelain. Research papers are being published in reputed national and international journals regularly. Considering the important role that the department of Ceramic Engineering has played, the University Grants Commission has granted funds under ‘Special Assistance and COSIST’ Programmes. Many R& D projects have been sponsored by AICTE, DST, CSIR and UGC. The Department celebrated its Platinum Jubilee during 1999 for 75 years of Ceramic education and organized a ‘National Seminar on Challenges of 21st Century’.Hide(-)
