Metallurgy & Materials Engineering combines engineering, physics, and chemistry principles to solve real-world problems associated with coarse metallurgy and advanced material science. MME is unique for its balance of basic science pivots on the relationships among the (structure, processing, properties, performance) and practical applications. The department\'s academic programs combined with research address all areas of materials, applied in any domain of human venture, including sustainability, energy, healthcare, nanotechnology, and manufacturing.
To provide students with the fundamental knowledge, skills and hands-on experience through quality education and research environment. In addition, the department aims to produce graduates striving to meet the challenges of industry and society
SCME has defined and established its program educational objectives (PEOs) keeping in view the desirable attributes of our graduates and crafting the program learning outcomes (PLOs) for the program. The process of formulating PEOs involved reviewing and harmonizing these with the university’s vision and mission statement, with rigorous involvement of senior echelons of the school. Based on the mission spelled for SCME, the following are the four educational objectives set Materials Engineering Department:
||To excel as materials engineers in traditional and emerging fields with sound engineering knowledge and to attain the ability to solve complex engineering problems using modern tools.
||To enhance their professional skills and technical knowledge through life-long learning
||To lead or participate in efforts to address societal and technical / business challenges.
||To practice and adhere to the principles of professional ethics, keeping in mind the social and environmental implications.
The graduates of the Materials Engineering department at SCME are expected to bring the following qualities to the organization they join.
1. Engineering Knowledge:
An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
2. Problem Analysis:
An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
3. Design/Development of Solutions:
An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of the information to derive valid conclusions.
