  • Major Focus - How much a school focuses on metallurgical engineering students vs. other majors.
  • Major Demand - How many other metallurgical engineering students want to attend this school to pursue a bachelor's degree.
  • 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 bachelor's degree.
  • Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized metallurgical engineering related body.
