Course media


The main motive of this course is to make you understand the METAL FORMING (Mechanical working of metals) in greater detail without taking much of your time. The prime focus here is the rolling process. However, extrusion, drawing, forging, Sheet metal etc. will also be covered.

For the sake of better understanding. I have made the explanatory diagrams by myself because in many textbooks they look very complex.The language used in the course is very simple and to the point.

Who is this course for?

  • Mechanical engineering graduates and undergraduates
  • Manufacturing engineering graduates and undergraduates
  • Students and enthusiasts having interest in metal forming process
  • Those who want to learn about rolling,extrusion,drawing,forging and sheet metal operations


  • Preliminary idea of Material science as such grain theory (Although everything has been explained in the course)
  • Brief knowledge of strength of material or mechanics of solids (Concepts like yield strength)
  • High school calculus (differentiation & integration) and trigonometry
  • The most important trait - "A kin and curious mind"

Career path

  • What Job roles you can apply after completing the course

    • Product engineer
    • Manufacturing supervisor
    • Metal forming engineer
    • GET/DET

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
