The Ceramic Engineering Department at National Institute of Technology, Rourkela specializes in the development of both traditional and advanced ceramics.


We offer a master degree in Ceramic Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Rourkela. It boasts state of the art high temperature furnaces going up to 2500 Kelvin and sophisticated analytical instruments like FE-SEM, XRD, DSC, TGA, etc. 

The current research focus of the department includes futuristic materials like Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, Lithium Ion Batteries, Nanomaterials, Advanced Ceramics from polymeric precursors, Materials development for tokamak fusion reactors, nano carriers for drug delivery as well as improved industrial products like advanced refractories and glass.


  • To produce highly qualified graduates possessing strong foundation in ceramic engineering worthy of serving industry, academia and research organization in India and abroad.
  • To develop strong liaisons with industries and academia fostering multidisciplinary activities.
  • To pursue fundamental and creative research in the science and engineering of novel ceramic materials and publish enduring scientific literatures.

Programme Structure

  • Traditionally Ceramic Engineers convert naturally occurring raw materials (rocks and minerals) into useful but low cost products like porcelain, glass and refractories which are used not only as household items but also in metallurgical and allied industries. 
  • However, the current trend is to use synthetic and purer raw materials to produce advanced and tailor made ceramics like electronic components, bio-ceramics, nuclear materials, cutting tools, aerospace components etc.
