The field of metallurgical or mineral processing engineering deals with extraction and processing of metals and non-metals. From extraction of raw materials from underneath the earth surface to removing impurities and processing them into useful material are part of this field of engineering. It's through various processing methods that valuable minerals are obtained from the ores and concentrates. For a country blessed with natural resources, mineral processing engineering plays an important role in driving the country's economy. Blessed with a huge mining and mineral industry there's lot of scope for professionals trained in this field. A postgraduate qualification in this field is all the more useful as it helps you launch your career in the mineral and mining industry with a head start.
Eligibility and course duration
A degree in the relevant field of engineering such as metallurgy, mining, etc. from a recognized university. Selections are through GATE score or entrance exams.
Duration of the course is 2 years.
Mineral processing engineering
This course in mineral processing engineering teaches you all about processing and manufacturing of metals as well as non-metals. You get to learn how valuable metals and minerals are extracted from the concentrates and how the impurities are removed. You learn transforming low value raw materials into high value useful metals and products. You are taught applying chemical and process metallurgy techniques and carrying out onsite testing and research. You look for new methods and techniques to improve upon the production of metals. You also focus on creating new materials from waste matter. Process design, process control and development are part of the role.
The opportunities in this field are excellent. The country has a very vibrant mineral and mining industry that provides for employment opportunities to thousands of educated hopefuls. There are opportunities in the private and the government sector. The M.Tech qualification helps you get job in some of the best companies & organizations in this field like Coal India Ltd., Nevyeli Lignite Corporation, Indian Bureau of Mines, Geological Survey of India and so on. Other than these one can also get in petroleum, petrochemical and gas based companies. There are also numerous opportunities abroad, especially in the Middle-East, Europe and North America. You can also opt for research in the field by undergoing doctoral programs like M.Phil and PhD. An academic career is also what you can opt for if you have the inclination towards teaching.
