Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgists

Purpose of Education

It aims to give knowledge and skills about the production, processing and testing of materials by explaining how metallurgy is applied in an industrial context through scientific foundations to the people who work in the metallurgy and materials sector but are not metallurgists. 

Thus, it is aimed to make technical communication more effective in the business environment and to be more knowledgeable and effective in responding to customer requests.

Target of Training

With this training, participants will develop their knowledge and skills on the following topics:

  • Metal gaining from nature and transform methods to the end product,

  • General properties of various metal alloy systems,

  • Concept of phase diagrams,

  • Factors affecting the selection of the right materials to be used in different engineering applications,

  • Mechanical properties and various test methods,

  • Changes in properties of materials with heat treatment techniques,

  • Fundamentals of corrosion mechanism,

  • Various production technologies of engineering materials
