Course structure

This programme runs biennially. It consists of four core courses (60 points) that are completed through a combination of extramural study and an intensive, three-week, residential block course that takes place in a location adjacent to a working smelter (usually in an international location).

It contains three major sections:

  • Section 1 features review and fundamentals assignments (extramural)
  • Section 2 focuses on onsite lectures by world experts on each area of technology. These are interspersed with tutorials, group work, assignments, tests and site visits - this allows you to practice the techniques and concepts. You must complete all four courses in order to meet the programme requirements.
  • In Section 3, you will complete an extramural advanced topics assignment. This is tailored to a specific technical issue of your interest. Sections 1 and 3 are to be completed from your home in approximately six weeks, and they contribute to your final assessment. Detailed feedback will be provided.
