Human Resource in Metallurgical
• Maharashtra is major state
housing all types of
Metallurgical Industries starting from Mining, Metal
Processing to the secondary alloy making.
• Most of the people employed in the Metallurgical industries
of Maharashtra such as Foundries, Forging shops, Steel
plants are not formally qualified in Metallurgy.
• Educational institutes are not offering Programmes in
Metallurgical Engineering according to the requirement in
the job market, hence there is perennial shortage of
Metallurgists in India.
• Our state Maharashtra produces only 200 diplomas and 160
bachelors in Metallurgical Engineering. Out of this number
very few pursue career in Metallurgical industry.
