BEng Materials & Metallurgical Engineering

General

Program Description

This program combines the knowledge from biology, chemistry, Mathematics, physics and engineering to develop, design and maintain products and process. Chemical engineers deals principally with production of chemicals from various raw materials and compounds and are also responsible for the extraction and processing minerals They design, build, operate and manage plants for physical; thermal or chemical processing of materials to obtain consumable goods and products such as food and beverages, plastics, soaps and detergents, fertilizers, cement, pharmaceuticals and refined petroleum products. Metallurgical Engineering, a major player in ensuring sustainability of minerals processing, prepares engineers to develop, design and operate processes and plants that transform raw materials into useful mineral and metal product.
