WHAT IS METALLURGICAL ENGINEERING ?
UG Course: The candidates must have cleared 10+2 examination from a recognized board with Biology, Maths, Physics, and Chemistry.
PG Course: Candidates planning to pursue their Master's in Metallurgical Engineering need to have done their Bachelor's in Engineering or Bachelor's of Technology in Metallurgical Engineering or equivalent degree.
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.
