We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Metallurgy equip postgraduates with the vocational and critical skills needed to extract, refine and manufacture metals and alloys, and examine their properties and uses.
Related subjects include Mechanical and Materials Engineering. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Mechanical Engineering.
Metals are used across a broad range of industries, making Metallurgy a dynamic field of study. Numerous specialisations are available for you to choose from, allowing you to work towards a specific future career if you have one in mind.
Typically, courses offer practical training in the techniques for mineral processing and extractive metallurgy, including mining techniques and suitable distribution and storage methods. Other technical approaches are also explored, including the processing of metals and the engineering of alloys,to change or improve their properties, structure, and mechanical behaviour.
Modelling and performance is a large component, with activities including digital methods like graphic design, studio work such as aerodynamics testing, and workshops on thermodynamics.
Careers in Metallurgy may include roles in producing metals and alloys for the automotive, rail and aerospace industries. Other careers could involve product design of consumer items or surgical equipment.
