Metallurgical Engineering is a domain of materials science and engineering that dwells into the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys.
Metallurgical engineering can be broadly divided into three categories - physical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy, and mineral processing. Physical metallurgy needs problem solving skills. Metallurgical engineers use complex equipment, including electron microscopes, X-ray machines, and spectrographs. Extractive metallurgy involves extracting metal from ore. Mineral Processing deals with the technology of processing mineral products after it is extracted from the earth crust in impure form.
Nature of Work
As a Metallurgical Engineer, you work with a variety of metals to design new products, refine the collection process, and create different blends of metal to suit specific needs. The process starts deep within the earth, where metals have settled over millions of years. If you specialize in mineral processing, you find new, more effective, more efficient, or more earth-friendly techniques for pulling those metals out of the earth. Another Specialty is called extraction. In this field, you start with metal ore--a combination of metal, water, and other materials. Your job is to design methods for separating metal from the rest of the components, with consideration for the environment. This process takes place in labs, refineries, and steel mills. Yet another specialization within metallurgical engineering is referred to as physical metallurgy. This is the field where you create new metals for specific products and construction.
Metallurgical engineers typically do the following:
• liaising with clients to determine design requirements
• providing technical advice about the suitability of metals for different purposes
• making recommendations and advising about product feasibility
• creating precise designs for components
• developing prototypes and innovative solutions to problems
• investigating corrosion and metal failure/fatigue
• ensuring adherence to manufacturing quality standards
• using specialist computer applications
• carrying out laboratory-based analysis of samples
• using both destructive and non-destructive techniques to test composition
Eligibility and Professional Courses
• 10+2 Science with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with a good aggregate percentage of marks.
• Entrance examinations are conducted both at national and state level (e.g. IITJEE, AIEEE, BITSAT etc.).
• Pursuing a Engineering Diploma after 10th for 3 years is also possible
• Candidates planning to take up 4 Year B.Tech or BE need to have good grades in their 10+2
• 3 Year Diploma Holders would be eligible for 2nd Year admission into the B.Tech or BE
• Admission for the M.Tech program can be taken after completion of B.E. or B.Tech.

Metallurgical Engineers can become a part of the industry that produces, buys, sells refines or manufactures metals or metallic products. In India metallurgical graduates can expect some exciting career opportunities in government undertakings as well as in private companies. One can also be a research fellow or a scientist or professor in various labs and universities located in India and abroad. Apart from the traditional metallurgical jobs, Metallurgical Engineering also has scope in defense, aviation , and nano science.
The starting salary can be in the range of 30,000 to 50,000 INR for freshers.
