What does a Metallurgical Engineer do?

Metallurgic engineers work in metals and alloys in various industrial and manufacturing settings. They analyze metals and alloys to determine their physical and chemical properties and may also contribute to manufacturing through the development of new alloys for specific applications, including a lightweight but strong metal used in transportation. They research metals using various methodologies including x-rays to examine their structure or an electron microscope to look at a molecular structure. They conduct tests to ascertain how metals react to extreme conditions, including physical stress or excessive cold.

Metallurgic engineers devise and produce alloys for multiple metals used in industrial products and must balance many factors. When necessary, they engineer solutions to the issues and introduce them to the manufacturing and design process. They support quality control processes in manufacturing, refining, and extraction through side observations and ensuring that workers adhere to best practices. Metallurgic engineers need a minimum bachelor's degree in engineering or related fields.
