Covers metallurgical fundamentals of how alloying, heat treatment, and cold working are used modify metal strength.

Learn the metallurgical changes that occur during case hardening and effects of alloy composition and process parameters on steel microstructure and properties.

Learn about the metallurgy of carbon and low-alloy steel. This includes effects of alloy composition and heat treating on steel microstructure, strength, and hardness.

Learn metallurgical changes that occur during through hardening and effects of alloy composition and process parameters on steel microstructure and properties.

Learn how tensile tests are performed and the mechanical properties determined based on the test data.

  • "Principles of Metallurgy covered the foundations of metallurgy and effects of manufacturing processes needed to obtain desired mechanical properties. This information has been valuable during my work in both design and manufacturing. I highly recommend it for someone that could benefit from knowledge of the fundamentals of metallurgy."

  • The Principles of Metallurgy course was a great refresher and supplement to the Properties of Materials course I took in college. The content focuses on information relative to industry, which will help greatly in my day-to-day job functions.

  • Well worth the time to do Metallurgy of Steel Heat Treating. It has given me more confidence in my job and given me a better understanding of some of the heat treatments used in the business

  • I learned a bunch from this course. I needed an understanding of the heat treating and metals for our heat treating process in house. I now have a much better understanding of what is accomplished in the process along with understanding what could be a problem in our process.

Metallurgy training

Learning metallurgy online is an effective approach for gaining knowledge needed to effectively deal with design and manufacturing decisions, questions, and problems related to the metals used in products and equipment. This includes:

  • Materials selection for components
  • Reducing component costs
  • Improving quality and reliability
  • Determine the cause of quality problems and component failures

Leveraging metals engineering

Product design and manufacturing is complicated. So, why not take advantage of every tool available to make things easier? Even though millions of components are made of metal, metals engineering is under-leveraged at many companies. The result… lost opportunities to decrease product development time, design lower-cost component, solve reliability and quality problems faster, and innovate more.

Learn about the science of metals (metallurgy) and apply it to make engineering decisions and solve problems related to the metals used in a product.
