Learn how to engineer metals, and avoid needless problems

For any product, meeting component performance, reliability, and cost requirements depends on two things: component mechanical form and component materials.

Design engineers are comfortable engineering the mechanical form of components. Unfortunately, they are not as comfortable engineering the metals in components. Many product problems that can be avoided reflect this.

The lack of comfort with metals engineering is due to a metallurgy knowledge gap.

Close the metallurgy knowledge gap

Our on-demand courses, webinars, and on-site training were designed to help engineers close the knowledge gap. Learn metallurgy and how metals can be engineered to:

  • Design components that meet performance and reliability requirements, at low cost.
  • Solve quality problems faster.
  • Have productive conversations with component suppliers, customers, and metallurgical labs.

Improve your metals engineering knowledge to bring greater value to yourself and your organization.
