The research activities of the unit are based on the understanding of reactions, reaction kinetics, thermodynamics and mass and heat transfer phenomena in high-temperature processes. The research made by unit covers the most relevant high temperature phenomena occurring steelmaking process chain from raw materials handling to casted steel slabs.
Metallurgical education is tightly connected with metallurgical research and hence its focus is on the methodological skills (experiments, analyses, modelling) needed in the R&D of metallurgical processes. More detailed information about our courses is available in the Moodle. You can also contact Eetu-Pekka Heikkinen for more details about our education.
