Today, Tuesday, the HTL Vöcklabruck visited us and took a look at the Chair of Ferrous Metallurgy.
After a short introduction, the inquisitive young researchers got familiar with the world of steel and received first impressions of what metallurgists can do. The path from iron ore to the end product was explained to them and they were also allowed to attack and try things out for themselves. The students now know more about which metals are added to pig iron in order to maintain certain properties and how the production of pig iron using hydrogen is to be revolutionised.
We hope everyone enjoyed it and we wish the students all the best for their future. We would be happy to welcome some of them at “MetalDays 2020” and later on as students on our university.
