Ceramic Engineering is one of the most important branches of engineering which refers to the study of the creation of objects from inorganic & non-metallic materials. This process needs the help of the action of heat, or at lower temperatures using precipitation reactions from high purity chemical solutions. Ceramic materials may have a crystalline structure, with long-range order on atomic scale. Ceramics are used in the gas burner nozzles, Space shuttle program, ballistic protection, bio-medical implants, nuclear fuel uranium oxide pellets, jet engine turbine blades, and missile nose cones. Ceramics are used for manufacturing airframes, aircraft engines, Space shuttles tiles, etc.
Q: What ceramic engineers do?
A: Ceramic Engineers usually develop new ceramic products as well as methods & equipment for processing ceramic materials. They also teach and do research in Universities and work with a wide variety of products, ranging from glassware & electronic components to nuclear reactors.
Q: What is the use of Ceramic?
A: The products of ceramic are penetrable, hard and delicate. So they are used to make pottery, bricks, tiles, cements, and glass. They are also used in gas turbine engines space shuttle program, ballistic protection, bio-medical implants, etc.
