International Steel Academy

The AIST International Steel Academy provides world-class instruction focused on the fundamental elements required to produce quality steel products in today’s economy. The individual Making, Shaping and Treating of Steel (MSTS) courses include the introductory three-day MSTS 101, geared toward attendees who do not have a technical background but need to understand more about the technical aspects of steel manufacturing; attendees with the requisite technical background can attend the intensive, five-day Steelmaking (MSTS 201), and Steel Shaping and Treating (MSTS 202) to increase their knowledge of the fundamental elements of these processes. The Practical Level (MSTS 300) courses provide more detailed instruction on Ironmaking, Steelmaking, Continuous Casting, Flat Products and Long Products. The Advanced Level (MSTS 400 series) explores specialized topics such as Advanced High-Strength Sheet Steel Production to boost the attendee’s understanding of theory and aspects of mechanisms used in steel products and translate this knowledge into practical engineering information.
