Ceramic Engineering

Ceramic engineering is the branch of materials engineering and science that involves inorganic, nonmetallic materials. (The other two branches of materials are metallurgical engineering and polymer engineering.) Ceramic engineers design the materials that make it possible for other engineering disciplines to advance: glass fibers and optical devices for telecommunication networks; electronic ceramics that make cell phones possible; high temperature materials that allow jet engines to operate at more efficient temperatures; biocompatible materials that replace diseased tissues, etc. Ceramic engineers use basic principles from chemistry and physics to understand how to design new materials at the atomic level, then to process these materials into useful forms
