Choosing a Great Metallurgical Engineering School for Your Master's Degree

Best Metallurgical Engineering Master's Degree Schools Your choice of metallurgical engineering for getting your master's degree school matters. This section explores some of the factors we include in our ranking and how much they vary depending on the school you select. When choosing a school we recommend considering some of the following factors:

Quality Overall Is Important

A school that excels in educating for a particular major and degree level must be a great school overall as well. To make it into this list a school must rank well in our overall Best Colleges for a Master's Degree ranking. This ranking considered factors such as graduation rates, overall graduate earnings and other educational resources to identify great colleges and universities.

Average Earnings

To determine the overall quality of a graduate school, one factor we look at is the average early-career salary of those receiving their master's degree from the school. This is because one of the main reasons people pursue their master's degree is to enable themselves to find better-paying positions.

Other Factors We Consider

In addition to the above, you should consider some of the following factors:

  • Major Focus - How much a school focuses on metallurgical engineering students vs. other majors.
  • Major Demand - The number of metallurgical engineering students who choose to seek a master's degree at the school.
  • Educational Resources - The amount of money and other resources allocated to students while they are pursuing their degree. These resources include such things as number of students per instructor and education expenditures per student.
  • Student Debt - How easy is it for metallurgical engineering to pay back their student loans after receiving their master's degree.
  • Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized metallurgical engineering related body.

Our complete ranking methodology documents in more detail how we consider these factors to identify the best colleges for metallurgical engineering students working on their master's degree.
