This new Internet-based ’Steel University’ proposal follows a ’highly successful’ pilot project – the Internet Learning of Steel Applications and Processes (www.ilsap.org) which was launched in July 2002 as two demonstration modules. The first module focuses on secondary steelmaking, including a realistic interactive simulation of converting a ladle of steel into a specific grade. The second module asks the student to select a grade of steel that would be suitable for an automotive door panel.
The new e-learning initiative provides funds for the full development of these resources to cover all major steelmaking issues – including raw materials, properties, applications and manufacturing. Each new module will encompass all the underlying scientific principles, with issues of recycling, environmental management, and sustainability playing a major role, according to IISI.
The modules will be devised by academics/industry experts and reviewed by a panel of global experts prior to their integration into a virtual ’Steel University’, which will also host directories of lecturers and researchers in academia, research institutes and the steel industry.
