BE Metallurgical Engineering

BE Metallurgical Engineering is an undergraduate Metallurgical Engineering course.  Metallurgical Engineering is concerned with the processing of all sorts of metal-related works. There are three main branches of the metallurgical engineering viz physical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy, and mineral processing. The Physical metallurgy is the study of metallic alloys needed for various types of manufacturing and construction. Extractive metallurgy deals with the extraction of metals from its ores. Mineral processing involves the tactics and methodologies involving collecting mineral products from the earth’s crust.
