Postgraduate Certificate in Light Metals Reduction Technology

This program covers practical, advanced concepts – from technological to environmental-related to the light metals reduction industry, especially aluminum. It runs near a smelter – previous locations have included Bahrain, Dubai, and the USA. Having minimal access restrictions allow opportunities for you to work hands-on and witness processes in person.  

Our content is curated for experienced technical and operations staff, many of whom can learn from each other. We boast tutors with decades of industry experience and significant research accolades, and an international focus that allows you to maximize your learning while only being away for three weeks.
