Metallurgical engineers develop ways of processing metals and converting them into useful products. They are involved in extraction metallurgy work in laboratories, ore treatment plants, refineries and steel mills. They are concerned with finding new and better ways of separating relatively small amounts of metals from huge quantities of waste rock. They work in physical metallurgy to develop new alloys to meet many needs. These alloy include radiation shielding for nuclear reactors, lightweight but high strength steel for automobile bodies and special metals used in electronic equipment. Physical metallurgical engineers also develop production processes that include melting, casting , alloying , rolling and welding. They design and supervise the processes that produce such goods as structure steel, wire or sheets of aluminium. Sometimes they are involved in processes that use these metal goods in the manufacture of other finished products. Physical metallurgist often work in laboratories or in manufacturing plants. They can find employment with top notch engineering companies like Tata Motors, Larsen & Toubro, Sundram Fastners, Essar Steel etc.
