Metallurgical science,  Metallurgy, Material science degree courses at undergrad bachelor, postgrad diploma, master, PhD doctorate research degree levels at universities in Australia are listed below.

  • Australian unis offer some of the best places to study Metallurgy due to the dominance of the metals, mineral ore mining industry in Australia
  • Metals mined in Australia include: Bauxite/Aluminium, Nickel, Copper, Gold, Silver, Uranium,  Iron ore,  Zinc
  • What can one do with a Metallurgy or Material science degree ?
  • Besides ATAR, what are the Year 12 HSC subjects prerequisites?
  • Metallurgy is a specialized area of materials science that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metals, inter-metallic compounds &  alloys
  • A bachelor degree in Metallurgy or PostGrad diploma may lead to employment opportunities in roles such as a Metallurgical Engineer or Metallurgist in the metals manufacturing industry Eg. Iron Nickel, Copper and alloys such as Stainless steel or galvanized steel, copper alloy monel
  • Extractive metallurgy is the  process of obtaining metals from an ore and refining it  into a purer state. To convert metal oxide or sulfide to a purer metal, ore needs to be reduced physically, chemically or electrolytically.

  1. Sir,
    I graduated from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Dhaka, Bangladesh) with a Masters degree in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering. I am considering applying to your university for coming academic year for working towards my PhD degree in the above field. Currently I am working as an Assistant Manager in Sylhet Gas Field Ltd. (oil and gas Production Company of Petrobangla) from 01/07/2009.

    I’m looking for scholarship to pursue my PhD. I would be grateful you could provide me the details regarding to financial help (it may be even work & study program). Waiting for your kind reply.

    Your’s sincerely
