Content and learning outcomes
Materials (mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, etc.) and their behavior during welding. Welding additives (different types for different welding processes, materials), Metrology, standards and documentation.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing this course, the student will be able to:
- thoroughly describe the materials technology of welding (weldability and how materials are affected)
- describe different metals and their alloys, and their properties in welded constructions
- describe how different pre- and post-treatment methods affects the materials
- describe advantages and disadvantages of different surface coating methods
- describe how the environment (corrosion, temperature, wear) affects materials and welded constructions
- analyse risks of a welded construction and its defect tolerance
- correctly select material and appropriate welding methodology
The classes are mainly concentrated to two full days of studies, in average every second week during two months . In between classes, homework assignments and preparation work have to be completed. High degree of attendance to classes is required.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- DEL1 - Attendance, - credits, grading scale: P, F
- HEM1 - Home assignment, 1.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LABA - Laboratory work, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TENA - Written exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
