The Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering started its journey at the Bengal Engineering College in 1939 as Department of Metallurgy, Chemistry and Geology with the introduction of a three year degree course in Metallurgy under the Calcutta University. Bengal Engineering College is one of the oldest engineering institutions in India and the department is the second oldest metallurgy department of the country.
The duration and syllabus of the course changed time to time and presently it is offering a 4-year 8-semester course for B.E. degree in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. The name of the department also changed to Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering to widen the scope of education with sea change progress in the field of materials from the erstwhile Department of Metallurgy.
This Department has always been very active in incorporating the recent trends in the fields of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering and in evolving suitable means for effective technology transfer to the existing industries. The Department has already pioneered in the development of certain important steels and alloys like HSLA steels, maraging steels, shape memory alloys etc.
