Materials and Metallurgical Engineering – FUTO

Materials & Metallurgical Engineering – FUTO

Materials and Metallurgical Engineering – FUTO

Materials and Metallurgical Engineering (MME), is one out of the eleven engineering courses offered in the School of Engineering and Engineering Technology (SEET), Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO).

Introduction to the Materials and Metallurgical Engineering discipline

Did you know that all engineering products utilizes materials?

The steel of automobiles, building structures, materials for aircrafts, ocean vessels, concrete of highways, etc are all engineering materials.

Each if these products requires materials of defined characteristics, such that the material can be processed into the final desired product not only satisfactorily, but economically also.

The most important design consideration in manufacturing projects are materials and their properties, as they do have critical roles to play in the performance / service life of the product.

Metallurgical Engineering is the study of production, properties and uses of metals and alloys. The course has been traditionally offered in many tertiary institutions world wide, as per the extensive use of metals such as iron and steel, aluminum, copper, tintanum, magnesium etc. as well as their alloys respectively in the engineering products.

Materials engineering broadens the scope of engineering materials beyond that of metals and their alloys. Thus, materials engineering is interested in the properties of a wide range of materials including electronic materials, ceramics, glass, polymers, and many other natural and man made materials.

A materials engineer by profession must therefore know how to manufacture and specify the materials for suspension bridges, TV sets, computers, oil refineries, rocket motors, nuclear reactors, supersonic transport vehicles, electricity generation stations, automobiles etc.

Students in this discipline are properly exposed to physics and chemistry of materials: with emphasis on structure-property relations the changes in structure and the concomitant property changes realizable through thermal and mechanical treatments.

Courses in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering

Students of Materials & Metallurgical Engineering are usually exposed, but are not limited to the knowledge listed below:-
