This 11-module course provides an introduction to metallurgy. Students will learn how alloy composition and microscopic structures within metals are manipulated using common manufacturing processes to obtain specific mechanical properties. This knowledge will help students understand the importance of the selection and control of the composition of an alloy and the manufacturing process parameters used during component fabrication. This will help students address decisions and problems related to product and process development, supplier evaluation and selection, quality improvement, and root cause analysis. Problems within the course modules provide examples of real metallurgy problems while testing student knowledge. A quiz follows most of the modules, including:

  • Introduction
  • Composition 
  • Microscopic structures
  • Crystal defects 
  • Diffusion
  • Microstructure Evaluation 
  • Tensile Testing
  • Hardness Testing 
  • Metal Strengthening: Cold Working, Grain Size, Reduction, and Solid Solution Hardening Heat Treating
  • Metal Strengthening: Precipitation Hardening Heat treatment
  • Metal Strengthening: Steel Heat Treating

Cost: Dependent on length of subscription. Options range from $70 - $200.
After registering for the online class, TMA staff will contact you with an activation code and further instructions on how to access the class. Please allow up to 48 hours for the course activation code.
