Ceramic engineering is the technology of manufacturing and usage of ceramic materials. Approximately ten educational institutions in the United States offer degrees in this field, examples being the New York State College of Ceramics (SUNY) located at Alfred University, and Rutgers University, and there are several in other countries. Some of these institutions are planning to change the names of their disciplines to "Materials science" or "Materials engineering." Clemson University and the University of Missouri–Rolla offer Ceramic & Materials Engineering which offers a wider spectrum of materials such as polymers, glasses, and composites in addition to ceramics.

Often the personnel working in these fields have been trained in Chemical engineering, Chemistry (for manufacturing), Mechanical engineering (for the study of strength, wear, etc.), or Electrical engineering and Physics (for optimization of Piezoelectric or Magnetic applications). Recently the field has come to include the studies of single crystals or glass fibers, in addition to traditional Polycrystalline materials, and the applications of these have been overlapping and changing rapidly.
