Engineering Degree Program in China - Metallurgical Engineering

1. Introduction

Metallurgical Engineering is an application-oriented science that studies the extraction of valuable metals or their compounds from ore and processing into materials with good use performance and cultivates specialized talents in the scientific research and development application of metallurgy engineering, engineering design and implementation, technology breakthrough and innovation, new technology promotion and application, project planning and metallurgical enterprises management.

The development trend of metallurgical engineering technology is absorbing the new achievements of relevant disciplines and engineering technology to enrich and renew and deepen, establish an intelligent thermodynamic, dynamic database, to strengthen the study of kinetics for metallurgy and metallurgical reaction engineering research in metallurgical thermodynamics, metal, molten matte, slag and molten salt structure and physical properties, computer application gradually realize the optimum design of the system and automatic control for the whole process of metallurgy. Metallurgical production technology will achieve production flexibility, high speed and continuous, to achieve the full use of resources and energy, and the best protection of the ecological environment. With the appearance of new technology, new equipment and new technology, metallurgical products will play a more and more important role in supporting economy, national defense and high technology development.

Metallurgical engineering is closely related to many disciplines and promotes the development of each other. Metallurgical engineering includes: iron and steel metallurgy, non-ferrous metallurgy two categories. Metallurgical physical chemistry is the basis of the application of metallurgical engineering. The engineering field has close contact with material engineering, environmental engineering, mining engineering, control engineering, computer technology and other fields like physics, chemistry, engineering thermal physics etc. and promotes each other to achieve common development.
