Materials and Metallurgical Engineering

Metallurgical engineers produce materials that power our world, forging advances in materials development that impact nearly every aspect of modern life. We transform the earth’s mineral resources into advanced alloys used in surgical implants, computer chips, superconductors, automobiles, and aircraft. Our special alloys are used by NASA in space stations, shuttles, and the Mars Rover. We are committed to sustainable design, recycling existing materials and engineering new recyclable materials that function in an environmentally-responsible manner.      

Immerse yourself in this vibrant environment of metallurgy engineering, where you’ll explore electrifying possibilities and develop innovative solutions to the most pressing problems of today.

Here, bright thoughts spark bold action. We offer numerous opportunities to roll up your sleeves and put your education to work through internships, co-ops, and research experiences. Metallurgical Engineering (BS) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, With one of the few specialized degree programs in the nation, industry leaders will be looking for you.
