    • A relatively novel undergraduate program in Metallurgy Engineering at Government Engineering College, Sector - 28, Gandhinagar has been designed to train engineering graduates who would be effective in meeting the emerging trends in our country in advanced materials as well as in Metallurgical Engineering.
    • The Department is offering an eight semester Bachelor degree program since the academic year 2008-09. The faculty team is a fine blend of young, dynamic and experienced individuals who impart knowledge in the areas of Physical Metallurgy, Mineral Processing, Foundry Technology, Iron & Steel Manufacturing, Metal Forming and Metal Joining, Powder Metallurgy, Non-destructive Testing and other Characterization Techniques. Students are given an exposure to the advanced areas like Nanotechnology, Smart Materials, Alloy Design, Failure Analysis & Selection of Materials and latest Characterization Techniques as a part of their curriculum or their projects.
    • An in-depth study of the area of special interest of the student is undertaken through departmental elective courses and project work. Their overall study at college is supplemented by industrial training during summer preceding the fourth year of the program, educational tours and expert talks.
    • Project work, both practical and computer based, in the fourth year of the program, enables the students to carry out independent research utilizing various skills learnt during the program.


    • Developing excellence in Metallurgy Engineering education through research, development innovation and team work for the benefit of society and environment


    • To prepare competent metallurgy engineers who can apply metallurgical fundamentals to control and manage different metallurgical and materials processing operations to produce quality metals products in industries.
    • To deliver information about current trends in the field of metallurgy and materials to the students.
    • To encourage students to work on innovative projects related to metallurgy engineering for managing defects free, economical, energy efficient products, processes or devices to best serve the nation to fulfill the socio-economic, techno-commercial and environmental needs
