Metallurgy Course

PD Approved

Course Overview

The metallurgy course provides an excellent understanding of the science and technology of metals, primarily for carbon and alloy steels. Alongside the classroom lectures will be extensive practical sessions, held in a well-equipped metallographic laboratory.

Who Should Attend?

The course is aimed at people working in, or associated with the steel industry; for example, equipment and material suppliers. Typical delegates include senior production operators, engineers, technical & quality control personnel.

Learning Outcomes

  • Theoretical and practical understanding of the metallurgy of carbon & alloy steels
  • Understanding of the processes, product and properties of steels that are used to make strip, sections and plate
