Kolkata, April 25, 2019.

India’s premier engineering institute, IIT Kharagpur and the largest stainless steel manufacturer in India, Jindal Stainless have tied-up to introduce a 3-credit course on stainless steel and advanced ferrous alloys as a part of the former’s undergraduate and post-graduate curriculum for the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.

The course shall comprise the study of stainless steel and the uniqueness of its various grades, behavioural and forming characteristics, determination of life-cycle cost, and an understanding of the entire gamut of applications; along with the study of advanced ferrous alloys.

The course shall commence as an elective from the autumn semester (July-November 2019) of the institute, with an initial batch of around 50-60 students.

Head, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering and School of Nano-Science and Technology, IIT Kharagpur, Dr Rahul Mitra said, “We are pleased to announce the approval of the senate at IIT Kharagpur for introducing this elective course. The curriculum shall focus on detailed study of different aspects of stainless steel and ferrous alloys. We thank Jindal Stainless for their efforts and look forward to a healthy industry-academia relationship.”

Managing Director, Jindal Stainless, Mr Abhyuday Jindal said, “Educating the young and brilliant minds of our society about the wonders of stainless steel is the first step towards nurturing a generation of future-proof engineers. As pioneers of stainless steel in India, we are propelling this transformation through our country’s premier institutes. With IIT Kharagpur’s support, this course will instil a sense of innovation in the students and motivate them to embrace sustainable solutions in the future. Stainless steel, as an environmentally-stable green metal, will be the perfect tool for this initiative.”

Director, Jindal Stainless, Mr S Bhattacharya added, “As a green metal, stainless steel has the potential to re-imagine sustainability. In India, it is still at the nascent stage, with a per capita consumption of ~2 kg, as compared to the global average of ~6 kg. This void provides immense opportunities to tap stainless steel efficiently in architecture-building-construction, automobile-railway-transport, and process industries, among other industrial applications. I am certain that with IIT Kharagpur’s expertise, we will be able to drive awareness among the future Indian engineers.”

The course curriculum will also give real-time exposure of stainless steel fabrication to students through visits to the manufacturing units of Jindal Stainless in Hisar and Pathredi in Haryana.  According to the new curriculum, the duration of this 3-credit elective course will be 4 months, with 3 lectures per week. Given that stainless steel is one of the fastest growing metals globally, this course shall open new professional avenues for the graduating students.
