About Us

The 19th century was the great period of engineering, thanks to the railways, thanks to lots of discoveries in metallurgy. ~ Joe Harris Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys. Metallurgy is also the technology of metals: the way in which science is applied to the production of metals, and the engineering of metal components for usage in products for consumers and manufacturers. Metallurgical engineers produce materials that power our bodies and our world, forging advances in materials development that impact nearly every aspect of modern life. They transform the earth’s mineral resources into advanced alloys used in surgical implants, computer chips, superconductors, automobiles, and aircraft.
