422-103. Metals Technology/Fabricators. (1 Credit)
The purpose of this course is to educate students in the areas of basic ferrous metallurgy and the properties of metals. Students will perform both destructive and non-destructive testing of metals. Although the emphasis of the course will be on basic ferrous metallurgy; the course will briefly cover the properties of cast irons, stainless steels, and aluminum.
422-302. Metals Technology. (1 Credit)
Examine the elementary principles governing the behavior of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Review the composition, production, properties, applications, and possible heat treatments of various materials.
422-303. Metals Tech-Fabrication. (1 Credit)
Become familiar with the elementary principles governing the behavior of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and the effects of welding on them. Review materials composition, production, properties, applications, and weldability.
422-406A. Metal Technology. (2 Credits)
In this course, students will be exposed to various heat treating processes, work hardening, thermal conductivity, and machinability and forging. Students will, through practical lab exercises see the effects of heat treating a material and how different metal technologies interact with different metals under different conditions.
