Course Description

The modern production of steel has evolved over many centuries, with many technological improvements during the last 25 years. The making, shaping, and treating of steel are critical to product design, application, cost and performance. It is essential that employees involved in producing iron and steel, operating rolling mills, supplying equipment and materials to the steel industry, designing products, engineering, sales, and construction have an understanding of what steel is, how it is produced, and the effects of making, shaping and treatment on the final performance of steel products. This course provides essential knowledge to those who do not have a technical background in metallurgical engineering, rolling or quality-added downstream processing but have a need to understand more about the technical aspects of steel manufacturing, properties and applications.

Who Should Attend

Iron and steel industry production workers and supervisors, equipment and materials suppliers to the steel industry, steel marketing and sales personnel, machine shop personnel, quality control technicians and supervisors, and component designers and engineers.
