Metallurgical engineering is the study and science of metals and their properties including metals from their ores , the making and compounding of alloys and the technology and science of working heat treating metals to alter their physical characteristics. Metallurgical engineering can be broadly divided into three categories - physical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy and mineral processing. Physical metallurgical engineers develop new alloys to meet various needs. These alloys include radiation shielding for nuclear reactors, lightweight but high strength steel for automobile bodies and special metals used in electronic equipment. They 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 sheet 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 and manufacturing plants. Extractive metallurgy involves the separation or extraction of metals from ores. Metallurgical engineers specialized in this field design and supervise the processes that separate the metals from their ores. After metallic compounds have been separated from the rock and other waster materials , metallurgical engineers use different processes to refine the metals.They are concerned with finding new and better ways of separating relatively small amounts of metals from huge quantities of waste rock.
