- 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.
Typical admission requirements : Physics and/or Chemistry, English proficiency
