About the course
Metallurgical engineers mostly work in converting raw metals and minerals into more useable formats, such as converting iron ore and coal into steel. They extract, refine and recycle metals and minerals that are used in energy production, food production, housing, transportation and other areas that play in an important part in most aspects of everyday life. In this major you will learn to design, develop, optimise and manage the operation of metallurgical processing plants that transform low-value raw materials into useful, high-value mineral and metal products in an economical and environmentally responsible way. You will receive a strong grounding in chemical and physical engineering, economic, environmental and sustainable principles, and the extraction of metals from ores. The course also includes a strong management component. After your Engineering Foundation Year in Perth, you can go directly to Curtin Kalgoorlie Campus, or study for a second year in Perth before completing your third and final years in Kalgoorlie. Studying in Kalgoorlie will provide you with meaningful exposure to the mining industry.
