Almost every major engineering achievement has been made possible by advancements in materials. Ceramics were the first engineered materials. From the humble beginnings of clay-based pottery, ceramics are now at the heart of nearly every modern technology. Ceramics play pivotal roles in electronics (from computers to cell phones), in transportation (from roadways to vehicles), in defense systems (from armor to guidance systems), and in environmental technologies (from catalytic converters to diesel-engine filters). Ceramic engineers design, develop and manufacture improved ceramic materials.
Study courses in the department will cover all branches of Glass and Ceramic Engineering. In the first year course content it includes introduction to Glass and Ceramic Engineering explorations laboratory in addition to foundation courses in math, chemistry, and physics. In the following years, a blend of classroom and laboratory experiences will help students to gain the skills and expertise needed for a career in the glass and ceramic industries. In the senior year students will work one-on-one with a faculty advisor to complete a thesis project to develop new and improved ceramics.
The Ceramic Engineering program prepares graduates for careers as engineers in the ceramic industries and related materials fields. Ceramic Engineering program in Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology is recognized as a leader in ceramics education and research in Bangladesh. As such, our graduates are highly sought after by companies that develop and manufacture ceramic materials. Also our graduates will have opportunities to work in government laboratories, academic area, cement factories, polymer industries, steel industries and other business organizations.
