What Is Ceramic Engineering



Ceramic Engineering is a specialised field in materials engineering, concerned with the development of ceramic materials. Ceramics are traditionally made from clay (a naturally occurring substance) and commonly used in pottery and brickwork. Ceramics Engineering also deals with ceramics made from inorganic (lifeless), manmade substances. Ceramics engineers perform similar tasks to materials engineers, the main difference is that they specialise entirely in ceramics and its applications.

Industries a ceramic engineer works in include aerospace, mining, medicine and developing components for electrical circuits.
