YoungBuzz Counselor - Dear Ashutosh,

Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the practice, the theory, the science, the technology, and application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment. Mining engineering also includes processing minerals for additional value.

Metallurgy is a domain of materials science that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their intermetallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys. It is also the technology of metals: the way in which science is applied to their practical use. Metallurgy is distinguished from the craft of metalworking.

If you enjoy the extraction process and it excites you then you must go ahead with mining engineering . where as if you are interested in the mixing and the chemical combination of the various alloys then you should go ahead with Metallurgy.

you may also take Analytical chemistry at the Masters level after doing Mining engineering at the graduation level. i hope this helps .However you may also take an appointment with our career counselors and come and visit us at our centers for further discussion.
