Ceramics Engineering is the science and technology of creating objects from inorganic, non-metallic materials by performing the action of heat or at lower temperatures using precipitation reactions from high-purity chemical solutions. This course also deals with the purification of raw materials, the study and production of the chemical compounds concerned, their formation into components and the study of their structure, composition and properties.
