SKU: IIT Guwahati Category:


The progress of several welding and joining processes is ever increasing with the development of new materials and their application in modern technologies. The micro joining and nano joining is even more challenging area with the development of miniature components. This course is primarily designed from fundamental understanding to the most recent advances in welding and joining technologies. The syllabus is oriented to the advancement of the joining technologies which is different from conventional welding and joining processes. The modules cover almost all the direction of joining technologies and it is blended with fundamental development to the recent technologies. Audience will be able to develop fundamental understanding on different perspective and recent development in this field through the lectures and reinforce their knowledge by solving assignments. This course is presented in a lucid and simplified way to make it enjoyable to the beginners.


Bachelor/Master/PhD students having background in Mechanical/Material Science/Metallurgical engineering/ Production  Engineering/Manufacturing Technology


There are no pre-requisites in educational qualification.

Certification Process

1. Join the course
Learners may pay the applicable fees and enrol to a course on offer in the portal and get access to all of its contents including assignments. Validity of enrolment, which includes access to the videos and other learning material and attempting the assignments, will be mentioned on the course. Learner has to complete the assignments and get the minimum required marks to be eligible for the certification exam within this period.

COURSE ENROLMENT FEE: The Fee for Enrolment is Rs. 2000 + GST

2. Watch Videos+Submit Assignments
After enrolling, learners can watch lectures and learn and follow it up with attempting/answering the assignments given.

3. Get qualified to register for exams
A learner can earn a certificate in the self paced course only by appearing for the online remote proctored exam and to register for this, the learner should get minimum required marks in the assignments as given below:

Assignment score = Score more than 50% in at least 6/8 assignments.
Exam score = 50% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.”

4. Register for exams
The certification exam is conducted online with remote proctoring. Once a learner has become eligible to register for the certification exam, they can choose a slot convenient to them from what is available and pay the exam fee. Schedule of available slot dates/timings for these remote-proctored online examinations will be published and made available to the learners.

EXAM FEE: The remote proctoring exam is optional for a fee of Rs.1500 + GST. An additional fee of Rs.1500 will apply for a non-standard time slot.

5. Results and Certification
After the exam, based on the certification criteria of the course, results will be declared and learners will be notified of the same. A link to download the e-certificate will be shared with learners who pass the certification exam.
