Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering train students on the verticals of physical and chemical properties of various metals. They also learn to determine the diversity of mixtures of various materials and understand their applications in different sectors. Metallurgical Engineering broadly deals with all sorts of metal related areas. Some major areas of studies include Hydrometallurgy, Mechanical metallurgy, Heat treatment of steels, Welding metallurgy and so on. Physical metallurgy, Extractive metallurgy and Mineral processing train students with problem solving abilities, ability to extract metal from ore and gathering mineral products from earth’s crust. Students on completion of this course becomes skilled of are then capable of configuring metals to produce materials that can fulfill the industrial demands. Aircraft and oven industry top the list of popular industries that need expertise in metallurgical and materials engineering.
