Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Researcher Thomas McCoy at University of Cambridge


The "Surface Engineering in Metallurgy" course is designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of the techniques, methodologies, and applications of surface modification in metallurgical processes. Spanning across three distinct levels, this course delves into fundamental concepts such as surface modification techniques, characterizations, and the crucial role of engineered surfaces in combating challenges like corrosion and wear. As the course progresses, it advances to cover more intricate methods like thermal spray techniques, alloying, and diffusion treatments. Moreover, it explores cutting-edge areas like nanotechnology applications, surface engineering for diverse industries, and the integration of surface engineering with contemporary innovations in metallurgy. The program culminates in an in-depth exploration of high-level applications in fields such as biomedical, aerospace, and electronic industries. Overall, this course equips students with a profound knowledge base and practical insights necessary to engage with the dynamic and evolving domain of surface engineering within the realm of metallurgy.

At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Surface Engineering in Metallurgy, by Thomas McCoy

  • I am an experienced surface scientist with knowledge in the study of nanomaterials and surfactant systems. I completed my PhD investigating fundamental properties and control of two-dimensional carbon nanomaterials in dispersion. I am now undergoing post-doctoral research exploring friction modification in engine oil additives and thin film drying.
