The breadth of training afforded to engineers specializing in the fields of metallurgical and materials engineering permits entry into many exciting fields. Virtually every component of any engineered structure is limited by the properties of the materials. The selection, methods of production, treatment and finishing of the materials depend on metallurgical and materials engineers. Exciting challenges exist today in the development and application of new materials, such as new generation of superconductors and ultra lightweight composites.
The curriculum at The University of Alabama provides classes that develop the underlying scientific and engineering principles involved in these areas. Student are exposed to an integrated learning experience in the classroom and laboratories, involving lectures, projects and problem-solving assignments. Stimulated by an environment of sophisticated equipment and computer technology, students experience individual attention from faculty through specialized research projects and classwork. Graduates of our department have distinguished themselves in many careers, holding a wide range of managerial, scientific and engineering positions across the country in industry, government and education.
