Hello family. Happy Sunday guys ,please I am confuse in choosing my carrier path. I have the opportunity to to choose either foundry engineering or metallurgical engineering in polytechnic and I don't know the one to go for. Please help a brother and make a decision though I know they are all related courses but I need the most needed in Nigeria. Those in the field should please help.

Go for foundry engineering cos it's already a kind of specialty. You will also do material as a course in Mettalurgical engineering. But foundry at Poly level will make you more focus and give you expertise. You may not have the comparative advantage over someone who studies materials in the university.

You have to be a generalist before becoming a specialist so go for metallurgical engineering because it has a wider scope than foundry engineering thus as production metallurgy such as mechanical metallurgy including welding, foundry, metal forming processes ( forging, wire drawing, extruding, casting, rolling and among other operations), chemical and extractive metallurgy such as corrosion science and engineering, mineral processing (iron and steel making processes) and materials engineering and applications in powder metallurgy, nanotechnology and among other engineering fields including metals and non metallic materials such as polymer, composite and ceramic (refractory materials).
