Me­tal­lurgy is one of the old­est sciences. It con­cerns it­self with me­tals and their ap­pli­ca­tions. Met­al­lur­gi­cal en­gi­neer­ing deals with the ex­trac­tion of me­tals from their ores, pu­ri­fy­ing them and shap­ing them for prac­ti­cal use. This sub­ject in­cludes phys­i­cal and chem­i­cal prop­er­ties of me­tals, their atomic and crys­talline struc­tures, min­eral ben­e­fi­ci­a­tion, and the struc­ture-prop­erty re­la­tion­ship
