The Metallurgy and Metal Forming B.Sc. at University of Duisburg-Essen provides a general engineering qualification in the area of metallurgy and metal forming technology for the manufacture and processing of metallic materials.


Interdisciplinary, multi-system lectures are designed to teach students system skills and the ability to solve engineering problems. The course’s international focus means that students are prepared for working in a global market, and at the same time makes studying easier for international students.

This in-depth, professionally oriented course focuses on two key areas. The first is the technologies and procedures required for the production of metals for industrial use. 

The second focus is the metal forming manufacturing processes for primary and secondary formation, with the focus on the process technologies that determine their properties. This encompasses hot-forming and cold-forming procedures in the iron and steel industries as well as for non-ferrous metals. It also includes forming procedures in manufacturing technology for sheet manufacture and cold forging. The Metallurgy and Metal Forming course from University of Duisburg-Essen is therefore both materials-focused and manufacturing oriented.

Graduates will:

  • Master basic engineering and scientific principles and methods and the thinking behind them;
  • Master basic specialist principles in manufacturing technology;
  • Master basic specialist principles in thermodynamics;
  • Master basic specialist principles in materials technology;
  • Master basic specialist principles in metallurgy;
  • Be able to pursue their preference for a commercial or academic career via their choice of electives;
