A one day technical course on fundamental principles and modern practices in Carbon & Alloy Steel Metallurgy & Processing.

This one day course has been developed for people with technical and engineering backgrounds working in or with the steel industry to help them gain an understanding of the metallurgy & processing of carbon and alloy steels.

The course focuses on basic metallurgical principles, primary and secondary steel making processes, how steels are specified and evaluated and matching grades to applications. It is ideally suited to industry professionals requiring a more technical insight into steel metallurgy.

Who should attend?

New or experienced personnel in technical and engineering occupations, who would benefit from an understanding of steel processing, products & properties. Attendees could be production or process engineers, quality and inspection personnel and could be at supervisory, managerial or professional engineering level.

How will I benefit?

Upon completion of the workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Appreciate the fundamental principles of steel metallurgy.
  • Understand how steel is made and processed.
  • How steel grades are specified and matched with a range of applications.
Contributes 7 CPD hours

Exactly what I required. Everything was explained very well and my questions were answered fully. The course fully met my expectations - Please send me the next course date!
