KIT Short Term Course on

Pedagogical Approach towards Teaching Materials Processing

September 12 - 14, 2019


Materials form the backbone of the manufacturing industries. The development of new materials and/or refinement of the exiting material composition /processing techniques are expected to broaden the diversity of the application of materials in the coming year. Development of new and advanced materials demand innovation in existing manufacturing processes to obtain the desired properties in the materials without compromising on the production front. In the above context, this TEQIP three days lab based short term course has been planned to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of materials processing techniques and their use in a range of sectors like automotive, defense and aerospace. The course will introduce important aspects of casting/ solidification, different joining processes, powder metallurgy, micro fabrication processes and various deformation techniques like forging, rolling, swaging etc. In the above broad prospective, the course will have three major objectives to serve:

  • The fundamental concept of material manufacturing processes
  • To provide the fundamental as well as the application oriented knowledge for understanding important concepts in materials engineering related to the manufacturing of materials
  • Exposure of the laboratory experiments on manufacturing and materials property evaluation

A series of lectures will be delivered by the specialist including our faculty colleagues from IIT Kanpur, on the fundamentals and manufacturing processes. The purpose of this course is to gets hand on experience of the participants in different manufacturing equipment’s housed in Engineering Metallurgy Lab (TA 201) as well as to expose them the pedagogy of IIT Kanpur. At the end of the course, the participants will be expected to have the basic idea on how to tailor the manufacturing process for a given material.


  • To provide a pedagogical underpinning of material processing and manufacturing approach both from fundamental as well as applied aspects.
  • Introduction to basic concepts utilized in materials selection and their properties that influence subsequent manufacturing processes
  • Basic elements of the solidification processing, joining particulate material processing and deformation processing.
  • Advanced manufacturing concepts (micro fabrication, manufacturing , rapid prototype, semi-solid processing) additive
  • Hands on demonstration and training on various manufacturing process from a metallurgical context

Tentative Topics

  • Introduction: Introduction to manufacturing Process, Engineering materials‐ classification Structure of materials, Types of materials, Properties of materials, Microstructure property interrelationship
  • Casting/ Solidification: Classifications of casting processes Patterns, Core making, Gating system, Solidification of pure metals and alloys, shrinkage, gas solubility, Riser design Investment casting, Casting defects
  • Joining Processes: Fusion welding, Arc (MMAW, SAW, SMAW), Gas welding and resistance welding, Fusion zone, Heat-affected zone (HAZ) ,Brazing and Soldering, Solid state welding processes
  • Deformation Processes: Stress strain curve, Effect of temperature on the workability , Extrusion (direct and indirect) ; Rolling– Hot and Cold, Forging (open and closed die) Swaging
  • Powder Metallurgy: Introduction, Powder production, Compaction and Sintering
  • Micro Fabrication Processes: Silicon processing, Lithography, Micro fabrication technique
