"The ideal metallurgist is a composite. He is not a scientist, He is not a mathematician, neither is He a biologist nor a sociologist, but he may use the knowledge and techniques of any or all these disciplines in solving their problems ".
Congress of Metallurgical Professionals involving Students, Industry and Teachers (COMPOSIT) is a national meet conducted by the Society of Metallurgical Engineers (SME), Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
The idea of COMPOSIT was conceived in 1994 to provide a common platform for fostering interactions and invoking innovations among those involved in the field of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
At COMPOSIT we aim to encourage the young and enthusiastic metallurgists from all over the country to showcase their talent. It also gives them an opportunity of a lifetime to interact with the stalwarts in the field who share their expertise. This year, the event spans three days (10th to 12th of March) of intense contests, spectacular presentations and nerve-breaking quizzes. Following the great success of COMPOSIT '16 , IIT Kharagpur is all set to witness yet another edition of COMPOSIT which guarantees all its trademark features and events on a much larger scale along with new features added due to popular demand.
