Indian Institute of Metals celebrated First Commencement Ceremony with Sir J.J. Irani Ex MD Tata Steel and former President of the Institute along with Chief Guest Dr. Sekhar Basu Director Atomic Energy Commission graced the occasion.
Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys.
Metallurgy is also the technology of metals: the way in which science is applied to the production of metals, and the engineering of metal components for usage in products for consumers and manufacturers.
The production of metals involves the processing of ores to extract the metal they contain, and the mixture of metals, sometimes with other elements, to produce alloys. Metallurgy is distinguished from the craft of metalworking, although metalworking relies on metallurgy, as medicine relies on medical science, for technical advancement.
And the institute is the premier organization in the country to set the standard for Practice of Metal and related processes.
This ceremony is to remind young minds in the field to work with the high professional calibers.
During the speech Sir J.J. Irani reminded every one about long association of his life with this institute and metal industry. Inspired all about the future and said to remain focused.
