Steel production has evolved over many centuries and new technological improvements are being made daily. The making, shaping and treating of steel are critical to product design, application, cost and performance. Therefore, knowledge of these processes is essential to employees working in producing, supplying and designing iron and steel products. These employees need basic understanding of steel production, making, shaping and treatment to final products. This course will be an introductory journey for those who have non technical background in metallurgical engineering. It is hoped after taking this course; the participants will understand the technical aspects of steel manufacturing, properties and applications. LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to: i. Understand the basics of steelmaking and how the ore to final product affects the steel quality. ii. Explain basic operational principles during steelmaking iii. Compare and contrast different iron making and steelmaking techniques. iv. Identify problems arising from steelmaking process and how to address it. v. Future technologies in iron making and steelmaking and how it will impact Malaysia.
