Materials engineering is the field of study which involves design and discovery of new materials, particularly solids. Many of the most pressing scientific problems humans currently face are due to the limits of the materials that are available and how they are used. Thus, breakthroughs in materials science are likely to affect the future of technology significantly. Material Engineers are deeply involved in Understanding the relationships between properties, structure, processing and performance etc which is applied in various fields of work including civil, chemical, construction, nuclear, aeronautical, agricultural, mechanical, biomedical or electrical engineering.
Nature of Work
Materials engineers develop, process, and test materials used to create a range of products, from computer chips and aircraft wings to golf clubs and biomedical devices. They study the properties and structures of metals, ceramics, plastics, composites, nanomaterials and other substances in order to create new materials that meet certain mechanical, electrical, and chemical requirements. They also help select materials for specific products and develop new ways to use existing materials.
The duties of a Materials Engineer include:
• Plan and evaluate new projects, consulting with other engineers and managers as necessary
• Prepare proposals and budgets, analyze labor costs, write reports, and perform other managerial tasks
• Supervise the work of technologists, technicians, and other engineers and scientists
• Design and direct the testing of processing procedures
• Monitor how materials perform and evaluate how they deteriorate
• Determine causes of product failure and develop ways of overcoming such failure
• Evaluate technical specifications and economic factors relating to the design objectives of processes or products
• Evaluate the impact of materials processing on the environment
Materials engineers may specialize in understanding specific types of materials. The following are examples of types of materials engineers:
Ceramic engineers develop ceramic materials and the processes for making them into useful products, from high-temperature rocket nozzles to glass for LCD flat-panel displays.
Composites engineers develop materials with special, engineered properties for applications in aircraft, automobiles, and related products.
Metallurgical engineers specialize in metals, such as steel and aluminum, usually in alloyed form with additions of other elements to provide specific properties.
Plastics engineers develop and test new plastics, known as polymers, for new applications.
Semiconductor processing engineers apply materials science and engineering principles to develop new microelectronic materials for computing, sensing, and related applications.
Now let’s go to, Eligibility and Professional Courses
• 10+2 Science with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics is mandatory with at least 60% marks.
• Entrance examinations are conducted for admission to B.E./B.Tech programs in marine engineering. Some colleges could consider the marks obtained in 10+2 qualifying examination as well, for selection into these programs.
• M.E./M.Tech programs can be pursued if the individual has completed B.E./B.Tech in the same discipline. Moreover, they need to qualify for GATE as well.
We at Brain Checker help students in choosing their career. To know if this career suits your talents of skillsets, you can consult a Brain Checker Career Specialist. Check link in the description for more details.
