Metallurgical engineering is a vast field that deals with all kinds 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 i.e. development 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.
Metallurgical engineers extract, refine, and recycle metals. They solve problems such as reducing corrosion, maintaining heat levels, and increasing the strength of a product.
They help develop or improve metals that are used in healthcare, transportation, defense, and in the entertainment industry.
The work of a metallurgical engineer impacts most other engineering fields as they develop core materials that can enhance the function of many products and systems.
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.
