WHAT IS METALLURGICAL ENGINEERING ?

The metallurgical engineering program is designed with an aim to prepare students to meet the growing needs of the Indian industry in the field of metallurgical and materials engineering. Students acquire knowledge about developing high-quality metal products throughout the various stages of the manufacturing process as well as how to test and inspect the final product. They are trained in the areas like extraction, physical and mineral processing. They get to know how to transform natural mineral resources into useful products for the society and also learn about pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy. As part of mineral processing, students are taught how to manage and control processes for separating, liberating the valuable minerals from ores.

SCOPE OF METALLURGICAL ENGINEERING

In wake of the stress that is being laid on energy efficiency, the role of metallurgical engineers has acquired importance as they continuously work towards increasing the properties of metals and ensure that energy consumption is reduced. They have to ensure that the metals that they are developing are environment-friendly. The demand for metallurgical engineers will increase in India as the country is aiming to produce 200 million tons of steel by 2020. There is going to be an increase in a number of steel plants in the country, thereby, resulting in the rise in demand for metallurgical engineers. Metallurgical engineers are engaged in logistics of mines and mining, planning of mines and restructuring. Regarding logistics, they are responsible for efficiently and safely planning the process of moving material out and people in and out every day. They are also involved in making recommendations based on everyday observations. In the present scenario, they are also responsible for the environmental safety and have to keep in mind that the mines that are operating do not cause pollution.
