Basic Principles of Metallurgy and Metalworking
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of the topics of metallurgy and metalworking.The course discusses the parameters, properties, metalworking processes, and identification methods of metal alloys. 


Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, known as alloys. Metallurgy is also the technology of metals: the way in which science is applied to the production and industrialization of metals, and the engineering of metal components for use in products for consumers and manufacturers.


This 4 PDH course is intended for material, mechanical, civil, and chemical engineers who are interested in exploring the basic principles of metallurgy and metalworking principles.
