Metallurgy is at the heart of the engineering process. As you must be aware of two main catagories of Engineers. Mechanical and Eletrical. Civil engineers also fall under either of these two, depeding on their area of specialization.
Metallurgist is a specialization of the mechanical engineer. I have some backgroung in mechanical engineering as well, as at the beginning of my college carreer I had chosen Engineering, later switched to Business.
Our most famous Pakistani brother, the father of our Nuclear bomb, Dr. A.Q. Khan is basically started his career as a metalurgist in Holland. This field is very vast, as it can be applied in all the fields, and auto industry is at the center of all the modern industries. You should definately go for it netsurfer bhai.
