Metals Technology Certificate

Metals Technology Certificate

“METTECH” is a coordinated programme of training courses intended primarily for technical staff who are routinely involved in the processing or testing of metals-based products. It is also suitable as technical background for staff in engineering and commercial functions.

Knowledge gained from the self-study manual and from each of the taught courses is assessed via on-line multiple choice examinations. Results from these will be aggregated and successful candidates will be issued with a University of Sheffield Certificate of Achievement, with a PASS (>40%), CREDIT (>50%), MERIT (>60%) or DISTINCTION (>70%). (Note that this does not constitute a formal, accredited qualification.)

Who Should Attend?

Although there are no formal entry requirements, it is recommended that candidates have GCSE grade A, B or C and preferably A levels in maths and physics/chemistry.
