University rank #151 (ARWU) ,
Metallurgical engineers mostly work in converting raw metals into more useable formats, such as converting iron ore and coal into steel. They extract, refine and recycle metals to produce products that are stronger, more durable and more energy efficient.

About

In this major you will learn to design, develop, optimise and manage the operation of metallurgical processing plants that transform low-value raw materials into useful, high-value mineraland metal products in an economical and environmentally responsible way.

In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.

You will receive a strong grounding in chemical and physical engineering, economic, environmental and sustainable principles, and the extraction of metals from ores. The course also includes a strong management component.
