DurationCourse duration is 21 hours – courses can be taught over three consecutive days, three days over a three week period, or as evening sessions.
Assessment2 hour written exam.
An overview of common manufacturing processes for product realization, material selection, automation and disruptive manufacturing technologies.
This course provides the attendee with the practical abilities to carry out sample preparation, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, chemical analysis (EDS), failure analysis and mechanical testing; along with gaining the theoretical knowledge to interpret results and understand physical metallurgy.
An understanding of the mechanical properties of many engineering materials. We study the test methodologies and standards developed to ensure that materials can be understood and safely deployed in a range of in-service scenarios. This course combines both classroom material along with practical hands on testing of real specimens in commercial test house.
