AWS metallurgy courses cover everything from the nature of metals to the properties that affect weldability. These courses are ideal for both students and professionals who want to learn or reacquaint themselves with the nature of metals, the metallurgical phenomena involved in welding, and the effects of these phenomena on the properties of welded materials. AWS partner, Industrial Metallurgists, LLC, offers more advanced and specialized metallurgy courses for design, manufacturing, and quality engineers.

Metallurgy I

Metallurgy I

Fundamental Concepts

This course employs clear, simple terms, audio narration, and animated graphics to describe the basic principles that underlie the broad field of metallurgy. Topics include the characteristics of atoms, the periodic table, chemical bonding, chemical reactivity, the atomic structure of materials, and the properties of metals..


Metallurgy II

Metallurgy II

Properties that Affect Weldability

Metallurgy II builds on the principles described in Metallurgy I to provide a basic understanding of the nature of metals and the properties that affect weldability. Topics include various metallurgical phenomena which, if disregarded, can lead to cracking, porosity, or welds with poor properties.
