The 5th Welding Summer University


The 5th Welding Summer University was organized between 7th – 9th of July 2017 at the University of Miskolc, Hungary. The aim of this conference is to gather university students from all across the country who are interested in the field of welding technology and metallurgy.


Beside Hungarian students, two PhD students from India were also participated at this year’s conference. Totally 50 students and welding engineers participated this year, coming from four different universities and from different welding related companies.

The topic of this year’s conference was the weldability and welding technology of advanced high strength steels and aluminum alloys. Totally eight lectures were held by university teachers in the topic of resistance spot welding of high strength steels, welding of duplex stainless steels, TIG and resistance spot welding of precipitation hardened aluminum alloys. Beside the lectures, the students were able to try out different modern welding machines equipped with different transfer modes in practice and they were introduced to the basics of wedding technology design steps from industrial partners. The audience also had an insight of case studies and welding related problems, occurring in industrial circumstances.



The participants were also introduced to the eu-WELD project. In oral lectures, the main goals and the partners in the project were described to the audience and all the participants got a printed brochure, which includes the aim of the project and basic information.
