Compare 5 MSc Programs in Metallurgy

Found at the graduate level, a master’s degree program usually allows students to study a chosen topic in-depth. This type of program is usually taken after earning a bachelor’s degree.

What is an MSc in Metallurgy? Metallurgy is an engineering field that focuses on the development of mineral materials. Programs in metallurgy often focus on researching materials design. Courses may cover research and development, modern manufacturing processes, physical metallurgy, material science and process technology. Focus is put on helping students develop skills needed to design and manage projects and work in a team environment. Projects may be completed to help scholars learn about production processes and technology involved in the field. The main focus is often on learning good research methods and understanding the mineral materials field and aspects of industrial processes.

Students who complete a program often already hold an undergraduate degree and have been working in the field. Completing a master’s program may help with job advancement. Many scholars also develop skills to enable them to become specialists.

The cost of a program is best obtained through your school of choice. This is because costs vary greatly from school to school and are mainly based upon the program chosen.

After completing a program, many scholars will simply advance in their current metallurgy career. Some may wish to advance into positions that include in-house specialist, consultant, researcher or teacher. Jobs may be available for graduates in fields such as design, sales, research and development, quality management, distribution and production planning. Some students may wish to continue research from the master’s program in a Ph.D. program.

If you are interested in working in an industrial field as an engineer, then you may consider completing an MSc in Metallurgy program. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The School of Chemical Engineering combines natural sciences and engineering in a unique way. This allows the results of our research to be refined a long way and put into practice as ready products and processes. Each innovation secures both our renewable and non-renewable natural resources for the future.

Imagine a world without metals. Without metals, there would not be cities, energy, transportation and many products that improve our quality of living. Metals have been, are, and will be one of the main pillars of the modern society and economy.

Circular economy requires more sustainable, efficient, environmentally friendly and economic metals processing. The major study subject of Sustainable Metals Processing answers to these demands.... [-]

Master of Science (MS) in Metallurgy and Mineral Processing

Metallurgical and Mineral Processing Engineering – Concentrations include: Extractive Metallurgy – Mineral processing, hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, applications to recycling and environmental issues like recycling and waste treatment. Physical Metallurgy – Alloy/casting, brazing, biomaterials, aerospace materials, steel, and welding. Materials Engineering – Composites, ceramics, intermetallics, single crystals, glasses, and cement/concrete.

DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW

Metallurgical/Mineral Processing Engineering deals with all aspects of metal and non-metal processing and manufacturing.

Mineral processing engineers have the responsibility of accepting ore mined from the earth, comminuting the ore until liberation occurs, and then removing the valuable minerals in the form of concentrates. Extractive metallurgical engineers extract the valuable metals from the concentrates, remove impurities from the metals using aqueous or thermal chemistry, and then market the purified metal as a commodity. Physical metallurgical engineers accept various purified metals and alloy them to control a number of characteristics including strength and corrosion resistance. Materials engineers control the same characteristics but pertaining to plastics, composites, glasses, ceramics, etc. Welding engineers join the various materials together but with minimal destruction of the integrity of the materials. ...

The Challenge

The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage.

The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:... [-]
