Steel courses have been developed by the Materials Processing Institute over the last 75 years.

During this time, scientists, researchers and engineers have been at the heart of major technological changes within the steel industry. The Institute’s ongoing research programmes have been instrumental in shaping the industry towards the state-of-the-art processes and equipment currently being used.

The Institute has expertise in the area of heavy end processing; from raw materials, cokemaking, sintering and scrap, through to oxygen and electric steelmaking, casting, rolling, reheating and finishing.

The Institute prides itself in being able to present both the academic and practical aspects of industrial processes at a higher level for management and an operational level for processors and operators.

Company workshops are also available with experts steering discussions and offering knowledge and ideas to accelerate process development.

The courses and workshops offered by the Institute are focussed, in-depth and based on the major technologies currently in global operation.
