Metallurgical engineering studies metals and how they can be safely turned into goods that serve humanity, such as surgical implants, computer chips, automobiles, space exploration materials, and more.
Metallurgical engineers analyze materials for safety, design sustainable materials, and systems for recycling current materials, study material failures, and develop testing procedures to ensure materials can resist harsh environments.
