The Salary of a Metallurgical and Materials Engineer
According to a report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this report shows that materials engineers, including metallurgists, have an average annual (yearly) salary of $86,790.
However, the top 10% earners in this category have a median wage of $127,850, while the least or under-paid 10% earn an annual salary of $52,110.
As at the time this survey was carried out, there are currently more than 22,160 materials engineers in the U.S. The Numbers of Metallurgical and Materials Engineers in Nigeria has not been determined yet, since no survey has been carried out by the government.
According to the numbers of workers in the US, Aerospace firms employ a total of 4,170 professionals, while the next biggest employers are engineering and architectural companies, employing up to 2,160 materials engineers.
What Does Metallurgical and Materials Engineer Do?
These engineers mostly stay in the metal shop and work with strong tools also. It’s expected that all Metallurgical and Materials Engineers must have a creative spirit and a talent for molding metal into new designs.
When you have these requirements, then count yourself, a complete metallurgical engineer before even applying for JAMB.
As a Metallurgical Engineer, you will be working with a huge variety of metals to design new products, refine the collection process, and create different blends of metal to suit specific needs around your community, Country and the world at large.
The process starts deep within the earth, where metals have settled for millions of years. Take note that if you specialize in mineral processing, you will be seeing and finding new, more effective, more efficient, or more earth-friendly techniques for pulling those metals out of the earth.
Another area of specialty of Metallurgical and Materials Engineers is known as “Extraction”. As an engineer in this field, you’re required to start with metal ore–a combination of metal, water, and other materials.
Take note that your job is majorly based around designing different methods which can be used for separating metal from the rest of the components, with consideration for the environment.
