Compare 4 PhD Programs in Metallurgy

A PhD enables students to obtain advanced knowledge and training in a specific field of expertise. Often working in collaboration with a supervisor, candidates complete a dissertation or thesis prior to receiving the degree.

What is a PhD in Metallurgy? Students experiment and study different metallic objects and substances. Most program participants have a master’s degree in chemistry, physics, metallurgy or material science prior to entering the program. Scholars study metal, including casting, theory and in combination with plastics, depending on the program. Research and development are also large portions of degree plans. The PhD programs average four years in duration, and students can choose part- or full-time enrollment.

Working with metal and alloys gives individuals the ability to invent, create and work with materials both at work and home. Research and collaboration skills adapt well to other sectors and industries, as well as both work and personal relationships.

Location of the institution and enrollment status will have a huge effect on the cost of the program entered. Each program has further information available to obtain costs and answer any other financial questions.

The majority of metallurgy graduates seek employment in research and academic institutions focused on topics like metallurgy, corrosion protection, metallic materials, surface treatment processes and corrosion. Chemical industries provide viable career paths for graduates seeking to work in the private sector. Positions in the corporate sector include manager and research and development specialist. Additionally, students may find quality employment in the teaching, engineering, science and technology fields. Engineers with metallurgy knowledge and training are employed in a variety of enterprises and industries that refine, manufacture, sell or buy metallic products and metals.

Part-time and full-time programs are available around the world depending on specific interests. To being next steps, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
