Mining, Metallurgy and Materials Science

Metallurgical Engineering involves the study, innovation, design, implementation, and improvement of processes that transform mineral resources and metals into useful products that improve the quality of our lives. Metals provide the foundation for our modern way of life.  We need metals to generate electricity to drive our electronic age society as well as for vehicles, buildings, machines, and home appliances.   It is the art of extracting metals from ores, refining them, and preparing them for use. The process consists of altering the chemical nature of the minerals in order to separate the metal from its sulphuric compounds, oxides, silicates or carbonates. Material science plays a important role in metallurgy too. Mining consists of extracting minerals and other materials selectively from the earth's crust, often in large quantities just so that small amounts of the desired product can be recovered. Four basic types of mining method currently exist.

1. Surface mines

2. Underground mines
3. Drilled wells
4. Underwater mining or dredging.


Metallurgical engineers work to meet the mineral and metal product needs of our modern civilization in an environmentally responsible way by designing processes and products that minimize waste, maximize energy efficiency, increase performance, and facilitate recycling Advancement. Mining is discipline that involves the practice, the theory, the science, the technology, and application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment.Mining engineering  also includes processing minerals for additional value.A complete knowledge of metallurgy can help us to extract the metal in a more feasible way and can used to a wider range. Global Metallurgy market will develop at a modest 5.4% CAGR from 2014 to 2020.
