Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering was established in 1963 with the intake of sixty students for undergraduate curriculum leading to Bachelors degree. Later, post-graduation curriculum was started in 1969. The Department has been actively involved in research since its inception and the first award of PhD degree is recorded in 1972. Earlier, the faculty members were engaged in research in the areas of Physical Metallurgy, Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Metal extraction and Powder Metallurgy. In the early 70's, a number of new faculty members joined and started activities in the areas of Ferrites, Composite Materials and Electroless coatings of amorphous and microcrystalline (now called nanocrystalline) Ni-P and Co-P. It was increasingly realized that the barriers between Metals, Ceramics and Polymers needs to be broken and an integrated approach to Materials should be evolved. The name of the Department was changed from Department of Metallurgy to Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in the year 2001 with the introduction of courses in Polymers and Ceramics at the curriculum level through research on Metal-Ceramic joining, Metal-Ceramic composites and Metal-Polymer joining.
At present, there is an intake of thirty students per year in the Master's programme and forty research scholars are working for their PhD (regular and part time) in this department.
