Principles of Metallurgy course - for engineers and technicians

Principles of Metallurgy

Principles of Metallurgy

Our most popular metallurgy course

This course teaches fundamental metallurgy concepts that apply to all metals and explains how these concepts apply to approaches for modifying metal strength and hardness. You will learn...

  • metallurgy terminology
  • metallurgical factors that influence metal properties
  • how alloying, heat treatment, and cold working affect metal strength

This course was designed for non-metallurgists - people who want an introduction to metallurgy or want to refresh what they learned years ago in a college course.

Understanding the concepts taught in this courses is an important step to more in-depth learning about different alloys, fabrication and joining processes, and heat treating. The knowledge you'll gain from this course will help you with design and manufacturing decisions, quality and reliability problems, and conversations with suppliers, customers, and engineers about metals.

What you will learn

  • Relationship between a metal’s properties and its composition, microscopic structure, and the manufacturing processes used to fabricate the metal.
  • Microscopic structures in metals.
  • How microscopic structures and metal composition influence metal strength.
  • How microstructure changes occur during heat treating.
  • Metallurgical changes due to alloying, cold working, and heat treating, and their effects on metal strength.

Concepts covered are applicable to all metals. Steel and aluminum examples are presented.

  • "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.
