Master of Science (MS) in Industrial Hygiene

Industrial Hygienists are responsible for the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of workplace environmental factors that may affect the health, comfort or productivity of the worker. Industrial hygiene is considered a “science”; however, it is also an art that involves judgment, creativity, and human interaction. Communication skills are very important.

Although some occupations may appear more dangerous than others, potential short-term and long-term health hazards occur in every profession whether a person is employed in an office or chemical plant. Industrial hygienists play an important role in ensuring that the workplace is as free from hazards as possible and that the workers and the community at large are protected from potential health threats. Moreover, industrial hygienists work with management to anticipate problems that could occur and take action to prevent them before they happen. Also, industrial hygienists play an important role in shaping and implementing government policy concerning worker health and safety.... [-]

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. ...
