The course focuses on understanding the science and technology of different forming processes. Most of the metallic objects undergo at least one of the metal forming operations, except the cast ones. Understanding basic principles of metal forming and further being applied by engineers and metallurgists directly contribute towards improvement in production in the industries. The concept of stress, deformation and failure, mechanics of metalworking and analysis of different metal working processes will be covered during the whole course. Introduction and working principle of powder metallurgy forging will be presented in the end. The course will enable the students be conversant with working principles so that they can use the knowledge gained towards increasing the productivity of manufacturing industries in the long run.
Any interested Learners
Introduction to manufacturing technology or manufacturing processes
Manufacturing Industries where forming takes place, for example SAIL, BHEL, Foundry and Forge industries like HEC, Bharat Forge etc.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Dr Pradeep K. Jha is presently working as Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at IIT Roorkee. He has been teaching the courses related to manufacturing technology and theory of production processes to undergraduate and postgraduate students for more than 12 years. He is actively involved in research work related to production processes, tundish steelmaking process, mold solidification in continuous casting etc.

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:
CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE
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.
