Aluminum is a widely used metal that is playing an increasingly dominant role in the green economy. Aluminum's high strength to weight ratio, low cost, recycle ability, and other positive attributes are some of the reasons that aluminum is being adopted as a material of choice by weight conscious component engineers.  This class uses hundreds of hands - on, real - world aluminum components and metallurgical samples to illustrate concepts in the text.  Aluminum literature is also provided as a valuable resource for people working with aluminum and aluminum alloy products.

Students are encouraged to bring questions and their real-world problems to class for discussion and resolution.  This is the ideal class for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of aluminum technology.
