  49. akshay tiwari

    what is the scope in metallurgy engineering , how much money they earn? plz tell me soon , i am from NIT raipur.

  50. AKB

    HI friends,

    it seems like most of you are apprehensive about the career prospects of a materials engineer in India. Being a recent graduate myself from IIT Kharagpur, i can tell you that presently there are hardly any lucrative job opportunities in India for graduate students as well as for those who have completed masters studies. The few of them that are there are in Tata, Jindal etc etc are mentioned in the post. As materials research on an industrial scale has not popularized to a great extent in india, the job prospects suck.

    However, if you go for masters/post graduation abroad there are plenty of job opportunities there. As for India, there are opportunities for post graduate students in the materials field based on core research and development.

    Hope this helps… πŸ™‚
