Steel Metallurgy Course - for design, manufacturing, and quality engineers

Steel Metallurgy

Steel Metallurgy

Getting the strength and hardness you need in your steel requires knowledge of the effects of alloy composition and heat treating on steel properties.  With knowledge of steel metallurgy you’ll be better able to

  • Select the most appropriate alloy and heat treating process for your application
  • Evaluate suppliers
  • Develop manufacturing processes
  • Solve quality problems

A good understanding of what can be done to modify the properties of steel is critical for being more productive and profitable.

What you will learn

The following aspects of steel metallurgy are taught in this course:

  • Steel types & designations used for the different categories of steel alloys.
  • Metallurgical phases and microstructures found in steels and their effects on steel strength and hardness.
  • How to use the iron-carbon phase diagram to predict the phases present in a steel alloy based on composition and temperature.
  • Microstructure changes that occur in steel during heating and cooling and the resulting effects on strength and hardness
  • Effects of cooling rate on the microstructure that forms when steel is quenched during through hardening heat treatment.

You will have 4 months access to complete this course.

Prerequisites

To get the most from this course, you should be familiar with the concepts taught in our Principles of Metallurgy course.

Course content

The course takes about 3 hours to complete and consists of 6 modules and a final exam.  Each module is 20-30 minutes long.  Also, quizzes and problems give you opportunities to apply the concepts taught.

The module titles are:

  • Module 1: Introduction
  • Module 2: Steel types and designations
  • Module 3: Steel phases
  • Module 4: Iron-carbon phase diagram
  • Module 5: Steel Heat Treating Introduction
  • Module 6: Hot rolling, Annealing, and Normalizing
  • Module 7: Through Hardening
  • Module 8: Course review

Course certificate

A certificate for 3 training hours (0.3 CEUs) will be awarded after completing all course modules and successfully completing a final exam.


  • "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.
