BE Metallurgical Engineering, Admission, Courses, 2019-20

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.

This course is full of the job opportunities. There are various leading MNCs where candidates can serve and even they can be employed by the various public sector undertakings of our country. The duration of the course is four years and the complete syllabus of the course is divided into 8 semesters.

BE Metallurgical Engineering Eligibility                       

  • Those candidates who have passed their Intermediate or H.S.C. (12th class) examination from a recognized board with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (PCM) are eligible for the course.
