Learn to design and manage plant processing operations to create mineral and metal products with the Metallurgical Engineering (Honours) program from Curtin University.

Visit the official programme website for more information


Metallurgical engineers mostly work in converting raw metals and minerals into more useable formats, such as converting iron ore and coal into steel. They extract, refine and recycle metals and minerals that are used in many areas of everyday life, including energy production, food production, housing and transportation.

In this Metallurgical Engineering (Honours) program from Curtin University 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 mineral and metal products – and in an economical and environmentally responsible way.
