Department of Metallurgical Engineering

Advisor Office: 230 WBB [Map]

Metals and mineral products surround us everywhere, every day - at home, on the sports field, in our autos and SUVs, at school and in the office, and they form the major components of buildings, aircraft, trains, ships, and even our mountain bikes. It is this strong dependence of our society on metals that gives this profession its sustained importance in the modern world. Economic and technical progress into the 21st century will depend in large part on further advances in metal and mineral technology in spite of the emergence of many new and exotic materials during the latter half of the 20th century. Metallurgical Engineering is the science and technology of processing materials to extract, refine and recycle metals. These processes include the development and use of metals and alloys that have specific physical properties.
