Level 3 - Engineering Technician
Metallurgical Science 2
The programme is designed to build upon the subject areas studied in Metallurgical Science 1. This module looks at another 6 key elements enabling your engineers to understand metallurgical and scientific principles in their broader context and where to apply this knowledge.
This Module prepares your engineer to "step up" to Higher Education and introduce academic rigour and independent study to their mini work-based projects and assignments.
Students will be supported throughout their distance/blended learning programme via their designated Lead Academic, web-conferencing facilities, workshops and their in-house Industrial Mentor.
Subject areas are:
Recrystallisation and Grain Growth
Introduction to Metallography
Introduction to Non-Destructive Testing
