Metallurgy is a branch of engineering which deals with the study in detail about various metals and its application in our daily lives. In modern life, metal plays a very important role in almost every aspect. It comprises the various study of exotic material, pure and combined which has its uses in various industries. As modern applications nowadays require material with high strength and low weight along with other factors, metallurgical engineering is one of the most important branches of engineering. Careers in metallurgical engineering leads to many developments within our civilization. Applicants who have opted for metallurgical engineering study in detail about the nature, bonding, various environmental factors of metal.
Metallurgical Engineers are basically those who have detailed knowledge of extracting, refining and recycling metals. They used to find new ways to use metals in machinery and other industrial use. The work of a metallurgical engineer provides a big impact on other engineering fields related to this.The three main branches of metallurgical engineering are -
Physical metallurgy - It deals with the method of problem solving regarding metallurgy like development of metallic alloys needed for different types of manufacturing and construction and various others.
Extractive metallurgy - It deals with the study of the extraction of metal from ore.
Mineral processing - It involves gathering the products of minerals from the earth’s crust.

India is on the verge of modernisation, where governments of our country are coming through innovative programmes such as “Make in India” and various others. This kind of initiative, resulted to make India on the world as a manufacturing hub which requires lots of metallurgical engineers. The need of metallic machines and their raw materials will be high and this result to allocate more budget on the metallurgical engineering sector in India. In India, there is no limit to the opportunities which are available for the metallurgical engineers. There are a wide variety of career opportunities after completing this degree course available for them. It also needs to be considered by aspirants who want to pursue metallurgical engineering that aspirants who are studying this course from IITs and NITs are more into consideration than the private institutes students. Pursuing metallurgy from other private institutes may require additional efforts to get into a core company.
As like India the scope of metallurgical engineering is very high abroad also. Aspirants after completing their metallurgical engineering can work in various big MNCs industries and can easily earn a handsome salary there. The scope of metallurgical engineering is in plenty; it totally depends upon your experiences and work caliber how you are bagging it.

B.Tech in Metallurgical Engineering
Candidates who have their interest in metals, can opt for B.Tech in metallurgical engineering after qualifying their class 12th or its equivalent examination in science stream. B.Tech in metallurgical engineering is a 4 year undergraduate programme. It consists of 8 semesters as it follows semester wise mode of examination. Candidates will go through the basics of metals while pursuing the undergraduate course of metallurgy. There are about 6 to 10 core subjects related to metallurgy taught to students in their undergraduate degree and the rest of the subjects are related to mechanical engineering. Candidates can either opt for jobs or can choose for the further study by opting M.Tech in metallurgical engineering.
M.Tech in Metallurgical Engineering
After completing the undergraduate degree, candidates can opt for M.Tech in metallurgical engineering. M.Tech in metallurgy is a two year postgraduate course of engineering. It consists of four semesters in two years of course duration. Candidates will go through the advanced study of metallics processing, extracting and its application in our daily life. GATE is the most preferred exam for granting the admission in the metallurgy course in M.Tech.
Candidates have to go through the following subjects of metallurgical engineering:

These two branches are one of the best in the country at ism dhanbad.irrespective of your gender if you have the rank to get these branches you must take it it would lead you towards a brighter future. You would have a lot of career opportunities.
I hope this helps
see the both of the stream you have mentioned are the combination stream , production engineering has concepts of mechanical engineering, operations research, where metallurgical engineering is combination of chemical and industrial engineering. however none of the stream can not be said as easy stream, but you should chose as per your subjects of Interest. now coming to job prospect there is wide scope in different industry from both of the stream, but the vacancy is comparatively less in public sector undertakings.
hope it would help.
These courses are very interesting courses. But max people don't know about these courses because max students first preference is top branches only. If you studied in andhra university that degree definitely has a value and placements are also good. But top branches have more placements compare to these branches.
ALL THE BEST
