Our state-of-the-art facilities and experienced faculty foster innovation and support student success.
The total number of hours required for master’s in metallurgical engineering is 30. A minimum of 18 hours of 4000, 5000 or 6000 level lectures, with a minimum of 6 credit hours of 6000-level lectures is required. A minimum of 6 hours of research (CER 6099) is also required.
The total number of hours required for non-thesis master’s in metallurgical engineering is 30. A minimum of 9 hours of lecture courses bearing numbers in the 6000 series is required. Students are required to take a comprehensive exam—a 30-minute presentation on a research topic—in their final semester.
Presently, all graduate students in ceramic engineering, metallurgical engineering, and materials science and engineering are fully funded graduate research assistants (GRAs). GRAs are provided with a monthly stipend, and tuition and fees are paid for by research grants. Interested graduate students should contact faculty who work in areas of interest to the student.
Imagine yourself as a Metallurgical Engineer, where you could be at the heart of the iron and steelmaking industry. Or perhaps you see yourself in the burgeoning field of 3D printing of metals and alloys. You could be part of a team that's ensuring the safe and efficient operation of nuclear power plants, or working with materials that can withstand the extreme conditions inside a reactor, helping to provide clean, reliable energy for millions of people. These are just a few of the exciting career paths that await you as a graduate of Missouri S&T's metallurgical engineering program.
