Missouri University of Science and Technology
Metals are the most recycled material on earth. Metallurgical engineers focus on the production of metals, metallic parts and the properties of those materials. Metallurgical engineers help make products stronger, more durable, lighter weight and more energy efficient, especially when utilizing recycled materials rather than ores.
You will learn about the extraction of metal from minerals, wastes and recycled materials, the design of metallic materials that possess desired mechanical, physical and chemical properties and the production of components from selected metals and alloys.
Where do metallurgical engineers work?
One in four jobs in the US involves the manufacture or use of metal. MetEng grads work all over the world for aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment, electronics, metals casting heat treatment and metals production companies. Some work for government or military research labs.
Missouri S&T's Metallurgical Engineering program has been ABET accredited since 1936.
We like to try new things. S&T's MetEng faculty supervise and conduct $2.4 million in research annually.
You'll learn from experts. All courses in MetEng are taught by full-time faculty.
Metallurgists are in demand. Our MetEng program is one of the few in the US that offers coursework in the entire spectrum of metallurgy.
S&T operates one of the only on-campus foundries. You'll get hands-on experience with metal casting and other skills.
Average starting salary for S&T MetEng grads: $60,437.
