The initiative to produce a course package in metal processing comes from the swedish industry. They see that today's newly graduated engineers lack the proper focus on their education for working in the future steel industry.
For students in mechanical engineering it is primarily about being able to analyze and simulate metal processing. When it comes to students in materials engineering (EEIGM and AMASE), it is about broadenings the knowledge in materials engineering and the metalworking.
