So I am currently a lab technician at a materials testing facility and the company is looking to hire a metallurgist in the far future and was kind ofinterested in the position, though i am not a metallurgist. I did a little research online to find out how to become a metallurgist and from what ive found i need a degree in Engineering and Materials Science....is this the case? Is that just the tip of the iceburg? I was hoping i could get some advice from some of you ACTUAL Metallurgists on which path i should be taking or what not. Thanks in advance!
