Metallurgical and Material Science  

Metallurgical engineering is a scientific study of the extraction, refining, alloying and fabrication of metals and of their structure and properties. It also involves with the study of chemical and physics activities of metallic elements. Metallurgy engineering has modern application demanding materials with high strength-low weight along with other factors.

The three main branches of this major are Physical metallurgy, Extractive metallurgy, and Mineral processing.

1. Physical metallurgy deals with problem solving, you’ll develop the sorts of metallic alloys     needed for different types of manufacturing and construction.

2. Extractive metallurgy involves extracting metal from ore.

3. Mineral processing involves gathering mineral products from the earth’s crust.

Material Science is the study of characteristics and uses of the various materials, such as metals, ceramics and plastics that are employed in science and technology. Material science incorporates elements of applied physics and chemistry. It also deals with fundamental properties and characteristics of materials.


Specialty areas of Metallurgical and Material Science Engineering



Heat treatment of steels


Metallurgical analysis

Minerals processing

Physical metallurgy

Welding metallurgy

Ceramics and glasses

Composite materials


Metal alloys



Metallurgy and Material Science engineers are employed in industries and enterprise that manufactures metals or metallic products. Professionals in this career can also have opportunity as lecturer in universities and colleges. Engineers are employed in Metal manufacturing industries such as Tata Steel, HCL, Jindal Steel and Steel Authority of India (SAIL). Engineers work as a Researcher, Metallurgist, Welding Engineer, Quality Planning Engineer, Senior Process Engineer and Metallurgical Lab Technician. Metallurgical and materials engineers are involved in extraction, refining, processing, testing and they evaluate metals, minerals, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors and other electronic materials, composites and nanomaterial .
