Metallurgy is a domain of materials engineering, in which you learn the physical and chemical demeanor of metallic elements and alloys. It is the science that examines why metals function the way they do and demonstrate the properties, behavior, and internal structure of metals. The metallurgy domain also characterizes the treatment and processes that allow us to tailor a metal’s properties to a specific application. If you are a materials engineering aspirant or a professional, the study of basic metallurgy will help you to develop skills & knowledge which are required to design and operate processes that transform raw materials into useful engineering products intended to improve the quality of human lives. This module therefore ideal for both students and professionals who want to learn or reacquaint themselves with the nature of metals and metallurgical phenomena.
