Glad you asked! steeluniversity.org is a free to use, award-winning, on-line initiative developed by the World Steel Association. It aims to provide a comprehensive package of highly interactive, informative, innovative, integrated and sophisticated e-learning resources on steel technologies, covering all aspects of iron and steelmaking processes through to steel products, their applications and recycling.
steeluniversity.org is packed full of great learning tools. We’ve linked a few of the key sections to this website. But to get a full understanding of all the great information you can find there, visit www.steeluniversity.org and browse the menus.
steeluniversity.org provides an opportunity to study and apply the basic scientific, metallurgical and engineering principles, thermodynamics and kinetics that underpin the production and use of steel. At its heart is a series of realistic, game-like simulations of the main steelmaking operations.
The website is intended for use by undergraduate and graduate students and their teachers, lecturers and professors and also employees (mainly at the graduate level) and their trainers from companies within the steel industry supply chain. Some simulations may also be suitable for high school pupils.
These resources are intended to supplement more traditional learning. They will provide professors and lecturers in universities with practical examples from the steel industry to illustrate and demonstrate essential basic principles and theoretical concepts, which are a vital part of developing the knowledge and understanding of their students.
steeluniversity.org can be used for self-motivated or directed study. The simulations can be used in competition mode, between individuals or teams. For maximum effectiveness the e-learning modules at steeluniversity.org should ideally be blended (alloyed) into the appropriate curriculum or training programme. The annual steeluniversity.org Challenge is an opportunity to compete worldwide in a 24h competition based on one or more of the steelmaking simulations.
World Steel Association hopes that steeluniversity.org will inspire and excite students about the value and wonders of steel, the opportunities steel presents to the sustainability of our world and about the challenging and rewarding training and careers in the steel industry.
