Ceramic engineering is the science and technology
of creating objects from inorganic, non-metallic
Materials. As ceramics are heat resistant, they are
Used in a wide range of industries, including mining, Aerospace, medicine, refinery, food and chemical
Packaging industries, science, electronics, industrial
And transmission electricity, and guided light wave
(10+2) examination with biology, maths and Chemistry. For IITs, It is mandatory to qualify in
The Joint Entrance Examinations (J.E.E). The duration for the course is 4 years.
