This field of study provides a broad and thorough education in chemical engineering and specialist skills in metallurgy courses.
Metallurgical engineers play a key role in ensuring a sustainable society. Almost everything in the material world, including our major energy sources, is derived from minerals or a combination of recycled metals and materials.
Metallurgical engineers develop, design and carry out sustainable processes that transform raw materials into useful, high-value mineral and metal products. They often work closely with mining engineers.
As a metallurgical engineer, you'll also design metal parts, solve problems and work on major high-tech projects, with the prospect of international travel.
This field of study combines our undergraduate engineering program with master’s level coursework and a semester-long placement or research thesis with an industry or research partner. These courses are designed to provide specialist knowledge of the various disciplines and place you closer to the leading edge of technology.
Business needs graduates who can apply new technologies to existing and emerging industries. The master’s courses will give you a clear advantage when applying for jobs that require advanced skills and capabilities.
With your diverse range of skills and knowledge, you will be able to work in production operations, engineering design, consultancies, laboratories, marketing, finance and commerce, and in research and development.
