Metallurgy Courses

Our metallurgy training includes on-demand metallurgy courses, webinars, and on-site courses geared to design, manufacturing, and quality engineers. The training covers practical metallurgy and metals engineering concepts that apply to component design, manufacturing process development, supplier evaluation, and solving quality problems.

On-demand metallurgy courses, webinars, and webinar recordings are listed below. We also offer all-access passes at a discount.

Close the metals science and engineering knowledge gap

Many engineers involved in product design and manufacturing haven’t had much metallurgy training. So, they get stuck when design decisions and quality problems come up that involve metals.

Our training helps close the metals science knowledge gap, enabling engineers to take advantage of opportunities to:

  • Make better informed decisions.
  • Design better, low-cost components.
  • Fix quality and reliability problems faster.
  • Have better conversations with suppliers, customers, and metallurgical labs.

All while being more productive.
