Dr. D.K.Likhi, Chairman

Indian Institute of Metals,Hyderabad Chapter


Dear  Friends,

I thank the members of IIM, Hyderabad Chapter  for giving me the opportunity to serve  the Metallurgical fraternity as the  Chairman of this Chapter.

As you are aware, metals and alloys formed part of the human civilization. We have historical structures   like the Iron Pillar right in front of us to showcase the marvels of Metallurgy. The growth of any country is synonymous with the development and innovation of the materials.  

We ,as a metallurgical community have the responsibility in  promoting and advancing the science and technology of metals and alloys and protecting the interests of metallurgists and metallurgical industry and also to preserve the  heritage of ancient history.

I am happy to note that the outgoing  executive council of this chapter has kept pace with the growing metallurgical and materials  requirements of theR&D , industry,academia,students and members  through  various activities like seminars,tutorials,industrial visits ,  memorial  lectures and invited guest lectures.

It is also heartening to know that a large number of members from this chapter have received  honours conferred on them at NMD  2016 held at IIT,Kanpur  .

I congratulate  all of them  and look forward to bring   more laurels to this chapter with your support in the days to come during my tenure  as Chairman.

Thank you.

The idea of formation of an Indian Institute for metallurgists was conceived as early as in 1945. This was possible by the efforts of a few metallurgists, who realised the need for an adequate body for professional metallurgists in India. During that time many of the technical informations were not easily available in India. Communications with other countries were difficult because of the war. The ordnance factories and many other industries involved in manufacture of various products for the war efforts were greatly handicapped because of the non-availability of technical information on metallurgy. The Inspectorate of Metals in the ordnance factory was the only reliable organisation who could undertake investigations on metal products.  

The Institute is managed by the IIM Council which is appointed by the members at the Annual General Meeting. For assisting in efficient functioning, the Council appoints various Sub-committees to monitor membership, finance, education & examinations, international relations, Chapter relations, publications, IIM awards & honours. 

Presently, IIM has 52 Chapters situated across the length and breadth of the Country to carry out the activities, to reach out to all the members and to ensure their participation and functioning in conjunction with the three divisions namely, Ferrous Division, Nonferrous Division and Metal Science Division.  .....more
