Extractive Metallurgy

Extractive metallurgy is a subfield of materials science and engineering that focuses on understanding the processes used to extract raw materials and separate valuable metals from raw minerals. Metallurgists use chemical processes to extract and refine metals, making it a natural area of focus for both chemical engineers and materials scientists. Nevada's long history as a mining state and ongoing involvement with gold and silver mining make metallurgy a natural fit with local industry and the job market.
