Ceramics and Composite materials
Ceramic engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the science and technology of creating an object from inorganic and non-metallic materials. It can be used in various industries. Ceramic engineering combines principles of chemistry, physics and engineering. Fibre-optic devices, microprocessors and solar panels are some examples of ceramic sciences applied to everyday life. As the applications of Ceramic material are expanded tremendously due to the recent advances in the field of medicine which include bio-ceramics and other, ceramic engineering is a booming field. Ceramics being a multi-billion dollar a year industry, ceramic engineering and research is an established field of science. Ceramics play an important in our day to day life; some of the items that include ceramic are glass light bulbs, jet engines, computers, cars and many household appliances. Ceramics used in Medicine, Construction, Electronics, Military, Optical fibres, Sports, Airplane, Transportation.
