The introduction to materials course will give you a basic understanding of the relationship between, processing, structure and properties of some of the most common engineering materials in the categories of metals, polymers and ceramics.
This course is designed to guide the student through the main concepts of power generation, supply and demand with emphasis on heat and electricity. Scientific concepts will be backed up using real life examples taken from some typical power generation systems.
This engineering composite training course is designed to provide an introduction into the manufacture and repair of advanced composite materials. The course has a practical element focusing on applications of composite manufacture and repair, to include initial layup manufacture and layup repair.
The course provides an in-depth description of the most widely used arc welding processes, an understanding of both material and weld metallurgy, the benefit of key testing regimes, and an appreciation of the causes and solutions for typical weld defects.
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.
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.
This module provides an introduction to the principles of microscopy and spectroscopy.
We are able to tailor and even develop modules around companies general products and processes. If there are specific technical training needs please get in touch to discuss opportunities. Examples include a course for Tata Steel on coke oven by-product treatment and an electroplating course for the Royal Mint.
If you would like to discuss specific content, then we can arrange an informal discussion with the course tutor.
