Sintering is a useful technology in the present world. The applications of the sintered products range from automotive and aerospace parts to the basic household parts. An attempt has been made to study the science of sintering through its practical application. This thesis aims to clarify some of the important issues related to two sintering processes namely conventional and microwave sintering processes. There have been few studies which have included comparative analysis of conventional and microwave sintering process. The present study includes the study of microwave and conventional sintering of a composite made from glass and copper powders. The differences in the two processes are an object of study. Most of the sintering process parameters are discussed as wells as the properties of the sintered products.
