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 Domagoj Baresic at University College London


The course on Physical Metallurgy: Crystal Structure and Defects offers a comprehensive exploration into the fundamental principles and intricate aspects of crystalline structures within metallic materials. Spanning across three distinct levels, this course delves into the foundational understanding of crystal structures, exploring concepts like lattice systems, unit cells, and various types of crystal defects such as point defects, dislocations, and grain boundaries. As the course progresses, it advances into more complex topics, covering crystallography, imperfections in crystals, phase transformations, mechanical properties influenced by defects, diffusion in crystalline structures, and other advanced themes. Furthermore, it addresses emerging areas, including nanocrystalline materials, electronic material defects, high-temperature deformation mechanisms, and crystallographic texture. Throughout its entirety, this course aims to provide a holistic understanding of crystal structures and defects in metallurgy, catering to learners at different stages of expertise and knowledge.

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.
