Through metallurgy, it is possible to understand themes such as micro structure, mechanical and thermal processes as well as joining and coating processes.

Understanding this role and the structure of these properties is achieved through metallurgy where topics such as micro structure, mechanical and thermal processes as well as joining and coating processes are extremely technologically important.
