What is Ceramic Engineering? Explained By Ceramic Engineer


Ceramic Engineering: Learn everything about Ceramic Engineering. I am a ceramic engineer from Anna University, India. A Lot of people wonder what is ceramic engineering & ceramic technology. What a ceramic engineer will do after finishing their degree? So In this post, I am going to explain, What is Ceramic engineering, Career / Jobs, Scope, Vacancy, Salary, Syllabus, Collage, Associations, Placements, Internship, projects, Books & explain everything about it. Whoever is chosen ceramic as a career through their studies, they are called as a ceramist. In my experience, whenever I say that I am a ceramic engineer, people will raise their eyebrows and ask what is about? Many people never heard about ceramic technology course.


In this article, I am not going to write or explain chemical formula, chemical properties, physical properties, production process and uses of ceramic materials. Because these details are easily available. The best source will be Wikipedia. But in Wikipedia, you can’t find the non-technical information related to ceramic engineering. The non-technical part is that what you are going to do after completing ceramic engineering & what will be the scope of this study and everything. So now I am going to explain about opportunities available for ceramic engineering/Technology or diploma students, career growth, how to search for jobs in ceramic industry and other cool practice stuff not boring textbook stuff. I would love to clear any of your doubts about it if I missed anything leave a comment below in the comment section so that I know what I missed here and I will answer that question. Leave an introduction about yourself in the below comment section and if you have something to say, it will be good information for all. Ok. Now we will dive into the subject let us start with the first question. Here is the information you will find in this ceramic engineering post:

What is Ceramic Engineering

Ceramic engineering is a study about Inorganic, non-metallic materials. The study covers all types of Ceramic materials, Manufacturing Process, Properties, Uses and etc. In study you will learn all the theoretical part of ceramic processing. You will know ceramic is not only used in basic application and it has advance properties that are being used in extraordinary application like nuclear reactors, Main parts of the rocket and much more application you never heard of. Ceramic engineering study has different degrees just like all other subjects. There is a certificate course which gives a basic knowledge about ceramic materials. And then a diploma course which will be study time of 2 to 3 years. And then there come the 4 years bachelor degree engineering for ceramics. And then as you know master degree and PhD. The more you study the more you learn about the ceramic materials in depth. You have to choose the level of study according to your career plan. For working in ceramic manufacturing plant I belive a diploma or a bachelor degree is enough to cover the technical aspect of the production process and technical aspects. Normally production industries don’t prefer master degree or PHD people for production jobs. Some companies may hire for R&D purpose. If you are going for an advanced research job you must have to go of master degree in ceramics or PhD level. So decide your career you want to proceed and move your study level according to that.


Ceramic Engineering is a narrow subject so that the scope of the study is limited. There are advantage and disadvantage of this. Even though the scope is very narrow, you be a specialized person in this sector and treated a perfect professional for this job. But still, the scope is limited. You will able to get a job in limited sectors only not like a mechanical engineer or electrical engineer. As a ceramic engineer after 12 years, you may find yourself in top of the organization sector which is not so possible in other industries.

Below is a list what some of my classmates, seniors & juniors doing from my ceramic engineering college?

  1. Me working in a sanitaryware production line.
  2. My friend working in the sanitary ware lab and R& D.
  3. Some of our senior working in a tiles production line.
  4. One of our classmates working on Glass production line.
  5. Tech senior joined as a lecturer in a ceramic collage.
  6. 4 of our classmates, some juniors & seniors joined in steel authority of India (SAIL).
  7. Some have gone for government jobs like the postal department.
  8. Few of them have gone abroad and joined MS in informational technology.
  9. Some have joined MBA & then gone for the job.
  10. Some seniors are working on a refractory production line.
  11. One of my classmates joined as a research scholar in abroad.
  12. A junior from Ceramic technology joined as an engineer on the Fiber production line.
  13. One of my M.Tech senior also works in Sanitaryware production line.
  14. Some seniors started small manufacturing units to supply Raw materials, equipment and machinery to ceramic factories.
  15. One of our juniors joined in the clay processing unit.
  16. Some have joined in IT field.

As you can see, the same as other courses, ceramic also have a wide opportunity in many areas.

What is after ceramic engineering?

Possibilities are limitless, as you have seen above what my friends are doing after done their ceramic engineering course. Whether you can join higher studies or You can get a job. If you didn’t get a job through campus selection then you will get some time between your studies and getting selected for a company. If you have decided that you are going for a job after you completing the degree then prepare yourself for job hunting. Job hunting is not easy for a ceramic engineer as far as I know. Because A computer science Engineer can get a job in any small companies but a ceramic engineer can get a job only in a big industry or a research organization. Approaching a big organization is kind of difficult and reaching key decision making person can’t be easy either. So prepare yourself for job hunting, find key contacts, reach them to find a job for you.

Ceramic engineering scope Comparision:

Here we will compare ceramic engineering career with other engineering person career. After finishing ceramic engineering from my experience I feel these points are to be considered before choosing a ceramic engineering career. Here I have compared a computer science engineer career with ceramic engineer career.

1) Job opening: ceramic engineering Job openings are less compared to other departments. But the competition is also very less. For example, if an IT company announces 100 jobs or fresher a minimum of 2000 fresher’s will apply for that opening, in some case more than that. So the competition ratio will be 1:20. But a ceramic company announce for an opening of 5 positions then they will receive a maximum of 10 or 20 applications. Some cases the numbers will be very less. Even though many other degree holders from other specialization apply for that job but the ceramic engineer will be very less or sometimes nil. Once I have attended an interview for a production engineer position. That is a foreign company and they are looking for 5 years experienced person for that job. But I had only 1 and a half years of the interview. But I am the only person who attended the interview with a ceramic degree so I got selected. So competition is very less but finding that a small number of job opening is the key.

2) Job Location: Finding a job at a particular location will be a dream. And maximum Industries are located at the outer side of the main city. Compared to other specialization get placed where you want to be placed is very much difficult. For example, a computer science engineer can find a job at a city location because Information Technology office is normally located in the city. And many companies will be located in the same place. So finding a job at city near to home it not so difficult for computer engineers. A computer engineer can find a minimum of 10 companies for him around 60 Kms from his home. Sometimes even more than 100 companies if he stays in cities. But for ceramic engineer life, it is not that much simple. Find a job around 200 Kms itself difficult. A very limited number of companies available and nearly all companies will be a well outer side of the cities. Even if there is a company probability of available vacancy will be very less. For example, I have studied in Chennai, 3 ceramic companies are available near Chennai. But there is no vacancy for me when I finishing my college, I got a job in Hyderabad which is more than 600 Kms from my home town. So leave this ceramic engineering course if you want to stay near to home.

3) Job Position: Once you finish ceramic engineering course and if you join any industry you will be offered a decent position. That means you will not be in the bottom of organization structure. To explain even more though you are a fresher you will be looking after some number of employees and some of the people will report to you. So your work will be managing and problem-solving. But a computer science engineer will not be getting this level in origination structure. He will be the one who is doing the work and he will not be getting anyone to report to him. So ceramic engineer will get a better position when compared to other specialization.

4) Career Growth: A ceramic engineer can reach a Plant Manager (General Manager) position in 12 to 15 years of experience. Plant manager position is a top-level position in any industry. But for computer science engineer will reach his career-best position (General Manager) at 25 to 30 years of experience. So reaching top-level potion in the industry is much easier for ceramic engineering person that a computer science engineer.

5) Living at one location: No, not at all possible for a ceramic engineer. Compared to computer science engineer living at one location and changing job is not possible for a ceramic engineer. Because as I explained before ceramic industries are not located near to each other. And for career growth and other personal reason staying at one company is not possible. So a big No, No for living at one location.

Career & Jobs

What Opportunity you can get after finishing ceramic engineering. Ceramic Engineers normally will get a job in ceramic production line and ceramic research & development labs. Now I want to clear some of the doubt normally arises for ceramic students.

What are the companies that are recruiting ceramic engineers?

All sanitary ware, tiles, refractory, glass, fibre, insulators, cement, metallurgical & other ceramic related manufacturing industries would love to recruit a ceramic student.

How much difficult is for a ceramic student to get a job?

Normally approaching a manufacturing industry is very difficult when you are a fresher. But once you get experience, then it is easy for you to change companies. And still many ceramic industries are managed by mechanical and chemical students. So when you compete with them in an interview ceramic student will be preferred.

What will be the minimum and maximum salary for a ceramic engineer?

Fresher from ceramic engineering college will get a minimum of 5000 Dollars per annum. It depends on which collages from you are graduating and the company you are getting offers. Metallurgy, Glass, refractory and advance ceramic companies will offer more pay than sanitaryware, tiles, cement & other ceramic manufacturers.

Which field is best for ceramic professional as per career growth?

Different Fields in ceramic industries offer different career growth. As per our experience, we feel that carrier growth, according to the order mentioned below,

  1. Research & Advance ceramics.
  2. Metallurgy.
  3. Glass.
  4. Refractory.
  5. Sanitary ware.
  6. Tableware.
  7. Tiles & Cement.

This above order may vary according to the company, Location & position which you are employed, For example, an engineer from an MNC glass industry may get higher salary than an engineer in the small metallurgy company. And above list is limited core ceramic industry. They are many companies offers a job to a ceramic professional. All the companies that are related to the core industry require ceramic professionals. Sometimes these companies pay more than the core industry because of the specialized skill required. Changing from one field to another field within the ceramic line is not advisable and it is impossible after a period of experience.

What other skills are those required for ceramic professionals to be competitive? We suggest developing some extra skills through extra courses to be competitive in the industry. Those are lean management (Six Sigma), excellent computer operating knowledge like making a technical drawing, Powerpoint presentation & drawing a flow chart. Learning software like MS Office, Photoshop, Basic auto cad & MS Visio is recommended. Taking an Industrial safety course for the industry is another helpfull to be competitive in the industry. Every day new technologies are developed so keeping in touch with the latest technology in the field is very important.

Is it difficult for a ceramic fresher to get a job?

I say no. Why? Because when we look at how many numbers of ceramic manufacturing (Cement, Glass, sanitaryware, Tiles, Insulator, Refractory, metallurgical & other) in the world. It would be more than 10,000. A ceramic manufacturing company requires a minimum of 10 ceramic professionals. But some of the large companies require more than 40 ceramic professionals from diploma level to PhD level. so if we take a minimum of 10 people per industry, then around 1,00,000 jobs are available and every year a minimum of 2500 jobs is being created for ceramic professionals. But every year not more than 2000 ceramic professionals come out of college. And not all students for ceramic industry always chose careers in the ceramic industry, nearly more than half of the ceramic professional looks jobs outside of the ceramic industry. That is why getting a job for a ceramic fresher is not so difficult. But normally job in industries are more like to be filled with referrals. So contacts, play a major role in job finding in the industry.

Job searching tips

Searching a job is a really difficult task when you have no contact within the industry. In industries, 70% of jobs are filled through contacts only. So when you want job in industry you need to watch out very closely to get a job. Once you get an experience you can build up contacts. Then it is easy for you to search and change your company. I have listed below some of the tips on how a ceramic engineering student can find a job in the industry. It is not limited only to ceramic engineering students it also for ceramic diploma student.

Do project in industries not in a research laboratory or college laboratory:

If you want a job in the production industry then do your final year ceramic engineering students should do their project in industry. When doing the project you have to explore job opportunity in that same company. Talk to the plant manager or production manager of that company. Request a job for you. In industry Plant manager or production manager has full power to give you a job. Even there is no opportunity at that moment they have the power to create a job for you. So when you doing a project impress them with your talent. Solve one of the biggest issues in production. It will help you to land a job in that company. Normally the biggest issue will be rejection or defects and utilization of full production capacity. When you enter an industry, observe the list of issues and try to find a solution for some of the issues. Then make a PPT and submit to GM or production manager. Trust me this method works because I got an offer. But playing in the industry will never help you to get a job.

Search Jobs in Social Media:
You need to concentrate on three social Medias other than job portals.

  1. Facebook: Join Groups related to the ceramic industry. Search keywords like a ceramic engineer, glass, Sanitaryware and etc.. Many groups are created by industrial people sometimes they will share job opportunity. And employees also create groups for their company. Search company name and look for groups and post you profile in that group.
  2. Twitter: User search box on twitter. An example search key WordPress are ceramic engineering jobs, ceramic jobs, glass jobs, sanitaryware jobs & etc.
  3. LinkedIn: A social networking site for working professionals. Join groups related to ceramic and join in the conversation.

Social media will help you to get more contacts which will lead to a job opportunity. Other Job finding tips:

Write an article related to ceramic industry and link to your social media page or leave your email id. I get a lot of contacts through this website. If you want to submit an article related to the ceramic industry in this website or Want some idea about which topic you can write article or Want to start a new website on your own then you can contact me. I can help you to publish article on this website or start a new website for your own. Mail me at vm3567 @ gmail. com.

Create a Google alert for keywords like “ceramic engineer jobs”, “Ceramic engineer vacancy“ and other words related to ceramic engineer jobs. Same like this you can create many keyword alerts. Other example keywords are “glass company jobs”, “sanitaryware vacancy”, “sanitaryware jobs” & etc…


As we already discussed the salary of the ceramic engineer may vary based on many factors. We have listed out some of the major factors which will decide your salary.

• The college you have studied.

• The field you chose in ceramics. (We have discussed the fields in the previous chapter) • Years of experience you have.

• Your communication.

• Your technical knowledge in that area you looking for a job.

• Your Negotiation skill.

• The location of your company & policy of the company.

• The position which you are going to join.

• Your day to day Responsibilities.

• The tax imposed by the government.

• The competition for your post your applying.

• The country you going to work.

• Last but not least your luck.

As rough Calculation, we can say a fresher in the ceramic field can get around 5000 Dollars per annum. Again this is a rough calculation based on the factor I know. But I know there are some people who got a hooping 9000 Dollars per annum. So to get a high starting salary you need to set a goal and work accordingly. You have to target a sector which you want to work and grow skills in that sector. Try to do make connections with the people in that industrial sector. There are many ways to make connections with this person the best way is going through your college’s seniors. Try to do and implant training/ Internship. So that you know the process in that particular industry and when you go for an interview you can give answers to satisfy the interviewer.

For an Experienced person, the salary mainly depends upon the sector and the experience in that industry. As we have seen in the scope and career section after 10- 15 years when you find a top-level position in the organization structure you may get 25,000 $ – 40,000 $ per Annum. These salary figures are given as per Indian Companies. India will not have so much tax deductions like USA and etc;


The Ceramic Engineering Syllabus covers all-ceramic materials like glass, sanitaryware, tiles, refractory, insulators, advance ceramics and etc. You will study the production process, properties and uses of these materials. The depth of the syllabus level will vary according to the level of studies you choose like a diploma, Bachelor degree, Master degree and PhD.

Even though we try to cover everything related to ceramic engineering but cant covered in a single post because it is a very vast subject. If you have any doubt regarding ceramic engineering, career, job then comment below. we will answer it which will improve the article much more. If you are a ceramic engineer or ceramic professional please leave an introduction about yourself in below comment section.


  1. Venkat sir, this article is just awsome….. I want to pursue a btech in ceramic engineeing after class 12. I have been searching the internet for a few days about this stream but did not get in-depth information. But its your article which cleared all my doubts about this stream. Thank you so so much!!! I live in kolkata. Should I pursue a btech from Government college of engineeing and ceramic Technology,kolkata?

    • yes, you can pursue BTech from Government college of engineering and Ceramic Technology, Kolkata. that is also a good college.

  2. Nice article, congratulations. As a ceramic engineer, I think this job description is quite similar to what I have experienced until now. Only disappointment, it seems that you have forgotten the ceramic engineering school where I studied. It is called “Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Céramique Industrielle (ENSCI)”, settled in Limoges, France, a city which is famous for its porcelain products and the European ceramic center (Centre Européen de la Céramique, in french).

  3. wow ! what an informative blog ! Prior to this I was not aware that, their may be a course like ceramic engineering.

  4. Very helping article for a ceramic guy.
    can you please help me about the career opportunity of ceramic BTech. in DRDO, BARC, ISRO, BHEL, and other reputed institutions?
    Can you share the application process? It will be a great help

  5. Dear sir,
    As a learner it helps me alot, i would like to know about TQC functions and inspection process, could you please help me in this matter, or is there is any books available in the internet, i i am having somany problems in our production , can you help me to find it out.

  6. Government Institute of Ceramic technology located at Gudur, Nellor (Dist) Andhra Pradesh(State) – India also offers Diploma in ceramic technology(31/2 Year Course – which includes 1 year Industrial training)

  7. sir, would you please suggest me to research on the fields/subjects under ceramic engineering which is used in NASA or ISRO or based on which they recruit the ceramic engineers.

  8. Thank you sir,Am also a ceramic student i graduated from Akanu Ibiam Federal poly Unwana located in Ebonyi ,State,Nigeria as a ceramist.But getting a job has been my major problem.

    • Hi Eyaba,

      Thanks for you comment.getting a job fresher is major issue in our industries. All the companies look for experienced people. only for some particular reasons they look for freshers.

  9. Very nice .I am diploma ceramic engineer from vridhachalam tamilnadu working refractory application engineer .Saudi Arabia ..I love my field .

  10. Comment…thank u sir for ur information to us. but between glass and metallogy which one is the best, or are they the Same

  11. Very helpful and informative article for any ceramic engineering students. I’m very hopful that u will keep sharing this type of articles in near future for d benefits of ceramic.
    Thank u sir

  12. Congratulations Venkat Mani for creating blog about Ceramic.it is very rear and good branch as a my point of view because Ceramic engineer need not worry about job as compair to other branches and we people earn more then mechanical . everyone get job is depends upon their score and college placement record but as my point view this is good branch which can help job in private as well as government jobs.in private refractory,cement ,white ware etc and in govt like Sail,hindalco,nalco,bhel,URDIP,research work .jsw steel etc
    I think reader of this blog got all information about branch and share this information with your friends and help to find right path which can give you brightness in your life .
    All the best and once again congrats to all Ceramic engineers in India

  13. It is a very nice n useful information for ceramic professionals as well as for new generation to understand about ceramic feild in the globe n to motivate the same.
    Really u have done good job for people to understand n awareness about ceramic professional for career n future growth.

  14. I’m civil engineer but recently i partnership in a sanitary ware industry.the construction work of industry is on going. I want to get all type of knowledge about sanitary ware. please help me..

  15. Im 37-year-old .am i eligible for a diploma in ceramic engineering.i m presently having 7-year experience as a ceramic supervisor. Please help me

  16. The article is more informative ……i have to know d govt jobs related to ceramic field .is ISROises ceramic engineers in rocket science

    • Thanks for your comment.. yes of course ISRO also recruits ceramic engineers not only ISRO even NASA recruits… But they look for Research scholars for their projects.. some of the important parts are made using advance ceramic materials which has to withstand very high temperature.. Publishing research papers related to this department will help to land jobs in this high profile jobs..

  17. Bro,Government institute of ceramic technology located at vridhachalam,Tamilnadu too offers Diploma in ceramic technology

  18. Article is informative.
    But the recruitment part I dont agree to it..
    Its too difficult to get a job in this field as v desire..
    How do v get an experience. Witout getting an job?
    Suppose if v join for some job to gain experience than they tel it is not related to this field, we cant consider..
    first of all our own ceramic industries an ceramists are not supporting to develop..
    Its easy to put it on papper but difficult to execute.
    Kindly develop in recruiting part to get jobs.

    • Hi Manu,
      What you are expressing is correct.. I agree some of your statement regarding ceramic engineering students career struggles.. i want to mention some points here, not only ceramic but any other industry entering as a fresher in manufacturing plant is very difficult with out contacts… Because lot of jobs are not published in internet or newspaper or social media. 90 % of jobs are filled in industry by contacts only. So for students seniors are the best connection between company and them. But if the senior is not supporting junior then it becomes difficult. I will explain how to get jobs in ceramic industry for ceramic engineering freshers in this article soon..



  19. hi guys
