Course Objective

This course aims to give fundamental description of unit operations, metal extraction, and shaping of metals for engineering parts. In this respect it describes the mineral processing, preliminary treatment processes, pyrometallurgical, hydrometallurgical and electrometallurgical extraction of metals and give basics of production of common metals and alloys such as iron, steel, copper, aluminium, magnesium, titanium, gold and silver by simple mass balance equations. This course also aims to equip the students with the basics of common manufacturing operations of raw materials such as casting, deformation and machining processes as well as joining techniques.
