The UA Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering features nationally-accredited programs, affording students the flexibility to shape their academic goals to suit developing interests.
Metallurgical engineering crafts the materials needed for other engineering fields – from making the next alloy for space ships to aiding the medical field with antibacterial metal instruments, or even creating a new hyperconductive coating for microchips. Wherever metals are used, metallurgy has discovered their chemical structure and developed the methodologies for working with them.
From casting and forging to more modern laser cladding and 3D metal printing- the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering offers a diverse range of opportunities for undergraduate study. As a Foundry Education Foundation Certified School, our goal is to provide innovative and high quality programs that support the many and varied interests of our students.
