Ceramics and Cement Engineering is the science of creating objects from inorganic and non metallic objects, done by several actions like heat, lowering temperatures etc. The process also includes purification of raw materials, the study and production of chemical compounds and their formation into components and the study of their structure, composition and properties. Ceramic engineering deals with the creation of objects from inorganic and non-metallic materials by using heat, or lowering temperatures through precipitation reactions from high purity chemical solutions. Cement is a binder material which is used during construction works as it has the ability to harden and blend the other materials together. The curriculum at most institutes includes courses like Materials Thermodynamics, Raw Materials Analysis, Ceramic Processing, Drawing of Refractory Lining and Joints, Ceramic Fabrication, Ceramic Equipment Design, Sensor Technology, Electrical and Magnetic Ceramics, Pollution & Waste Management in Ceramic Industry and lots more.
