Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials. As such, it is essential for those involved in manufacturing, engineering and construction to have an understanding of what metals are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. It is also important to understand how they can be made stronger or more corrosion-resistant, how they can be shaped by casting, forging, forming, machining, or welding, and how these processes can alter properties. This course provides this important knowledge to those who are not metallurgists.
This course is designed for anyone wishing to advance their knowledge about basic metallurgy - whether you are a technician, salesperson/manager, designer, an engineer without a metallurgical background, or employee of forging/casting company.
If taken online, "Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist" costs $1200 to $1400 for members and non-members, respectively. Taken at the ASM facility in Ohio, the cost is $2400 to $2600.
ASM Milwaukee is offering this course for only $250 to $600 (not including a $50 discount for registrations received by March 14).
