Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student can apply his theoretical knowledge for proposals of the rolling technologies optimization (including the rolls’ grooving) with the aim to reach the asked shape, dimensions and properties of the rolled products. He will be able to use his practical knowledge for making the operational rolling conditions more effective. Student will be informed in final treatment of the rolled products.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs
Project work


The objective of the subject is to give the student the wide theoretical knowledge about various technologies of rolling and grooving and inform him in details about rolling mills of several types. Subject provides the basic overview of the theory and technology of heat treatment and metallic coatings of the rolled products.
