Use metallurgy knowledge to solve real-world problems

How often do you face these problems?

  • Decreased profit because your products cost too much to make
  • Lost sales when products miss their launch date because of quality or reliability problems
  • Manufacturing and supplier quality problems that slow down your production line

What do these problems have in common? Metallurgy!

For products made of metal, many problems occur because people overlook metallurgy when making design, manufacturing, and supplier decisions and when working on quality problems. Created for design, quality, and manufacturing engineers, our metallurgy courses teach practical metallurgy concepts and how to apply them to real-world problems and decisions.
