Metallurgical Engineering : Scope and Prospects

Metallurgical Engineering is a broad field that deals with all sorts of metal-related areas. The three main branches of this major are physical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy, and mineral processing. Physical metallurgy deals with problem solving: you’ll develop the sorts of metallic alloys needed for different types of manufacturing and construction. Extractive metallurgy involves extracting metal from ore. Mineral processing involves gathering mineral products from the earth’s crust.

Work Prospects :

Metallurgical engineers are employed in many industries and work for companies that refine, produce, manufacture and distribute metals. Because metals are used in so many industries, employment can be in large companies or small consulting firms.

Salary ranges for metallurgical engineers are usually categorized under the materials engineering discipline in salary surveys. Based on this summarization, graduates with degrees in metallurgical engineering can expect salary offers of about $50,000.

There are very few accredited metallurgical engineering programs. Thus, employment rates for those graduating with a bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering are extremely high.

Scope of Metallurgical Engineering :

Metallurgical engineering has a wide scope. Basically, metallurgy is science and technology of metals and materials. After four years, a Metallurgical engineer may get excellent job or may go further for M.S or M.TECH.

Metallurgy has three fields which are physical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy and mechanical metallurgy.

The main drawback of this branch in India is that very few seats are available in India.
