Srivastava, Aaditya Ranjan; Bajpai, Shrish; Khare, Sushant
Comparative Professional Pedagogy, v8 n1 p84-88 Mar 2018
Historical overview of ceramic development has been provided in the paper. It has been stated that the trail of ceramics has been rooted in Indus valley civilization. Advancement of materials leads to afflux of development in the fields of science and technology. Present paper deals with the realm of Ceramic Engineering, mainly focuses on education and jobs in the respected fields in India. This paper also holds the framework and research work in Ceramic Engineering in India. It has been defined that the whole processing of ceramics is done in the laboratories, like refractories, ceramics white wares, fuel furnace and pyrometry etc. There are a number of jobs which are offered by government sector as well as private sector. It has been determined that ceramic engineers are able to get job opportunities in aerospace, automotive industry, building material manufacturing, chemical industries, electronics, food processing, mining, medicine and refinery sectors in India. Curricula, undergraduate and postgraduate programs in Ceramics Engineering have been characterized. The peculiarities of dual degree education in Ceramics Engineering have been described. It has been stated that there are several initiatives taken by the government for the enhancement of skills and knowledge in Ceramics Engineering, which have been discussed in the extant paper. It has been defined that a new advancement in Ceramics Engineering is the initiative for enhancement of the knowledge through video lectures, offered by a couple of institutes. The prospects of ceramics application have been analyzed. It has been stated that the momentousness of ceramics are protruding diurnally just like in sculptures designing, pottery, building constructions, sanitary & textile etc. Not only the designing field of ceramics but its use in electronics field has been covered. It has been concluded that ceramic has a great potential to give solutions to the heat absorption between the walls or contacting surfaces. Earthenware was the heretofore product of ceramics. It has been proved that the future scope of ceramic is enormous. It has also been stressed that nowadays Ceramic Engineering is one of the emerging fields in engineering education, but a very prospective one.
