Welding Engineering is the science of holding things together. Instead of crazy glue you have ceramics, metals, plastics, titanium, steel, and dozens of other different materials. Beyond just holding materials together, Welding Engineering also encompasses almost every aspect of construction: from the actual development and shaping of the material, to the creation of new methods of keeping things from falling apart.
Welding is a critical manufacturing process that has been estimated to impact over 50% of the products manufactured in India. Almost every segment of our economy depends, to some degree, on welding and materials joining. While most may think of welding in terms of a process, it is actually a complex engineering discipline that involves aspects of materials science, design, inspection, mechanical and electronic systems, lasers, and robots.
Welding is integral to the manufacture of a wide range of products, from high-power laser welding of large ships, to micro joining of thin wires to circuit boards. The application of welding and joining continues to expand; in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries; in transport, including automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding; in manufacture of electronic systems; in defence industries; and in general manufacturing. The post graduate study in welding engineering addresses these needs, and covers a wide range of areas that are part of modern welding technology such as automation, metallurgy and materials science, welding processes, design, and quality. It provides students with a fundamental understanding of welding technologies and an awareness of recent technical developments within the relevant industries.
