About Metallurgy Test
Metallurgy tests measure a candidate’s knowledge of the fundamental concepts of metallurgy, such as introductory chemistry, material science, analysis of materials & their characteristics, various processes and technologies, thermal engineering, etc.
The assessment focuses on a test taker’s understanding of thermal systems, application of the laws of thermodynamics for said systems, knowledge of phase diagrams to determine material behavior, and the terminology and formulas used to describe the phases. The fundamental topics use questions relating to the processes to find resulting materials or figure out the appropriate technology to be deployed for a given material. It also tests an applicant’s ability to comprehend given information to accurately predict outcomes based on changes in physical and chemical parameters in the processes.
Metallurgy test ensures sufficient learning and hands-on work in material manufacturing, processing, fabricating, heat treating, and testing. Candidates with good scores can help define safety and quality requirements, perform checks, and research and work on processes that improve the physical properties of metals and alloys.
Engineers with a background in metallurgy should possess adequate proficiency in chemical theories and concepts, the technical processes used for extracting materials, their composition, structural science, and phases. Candidates applying for Metallurgical or Material engineer posts are assessed utilizing the metallurgy test on these domains.

Hire the best, every time, anywhere
Testlify helps you identify the best talent from anywhere in the world, with a seamless experience that candidates and hiring teams love every step of the way.
Fundamentals of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering
The candidates are tested for their knowledge of some basic engineering processes carried out in metallurgical processes. Chemical reactions, nature of materials to be used, characteristics of materials, and their physical and chemical properties are assessed. Improvements in structural aspects of metals and the relevant technology to be deployed to achieve the same are the topics evaluated.
Knowledge of the material processing technologies, the resulting outcomes of different processes, and their effect on the metal or alloy is mandatory for metallurgy engineers. This test questions the candidates on the various methods of processing materials, their associated products, and changes in the material.
Thermodynamics, its laws, material phases, single-phase and multiple-phase systems, and the characteristics and efficiency of the system come under Thermal Engineering. Applicants are assessed based on their ability to accurately gauge the thermal design, its present state, the formula and variables used to describe it, etc.
The test is created by a subject-matter expert
Testlify’s skill tests are designed by experienced SMEs (subject matter experts). We evaluate these experts based on specific metrics such as expertise, capability, and their market reputation. Prior to being published, each skill test is peer-reviewed by other experts and then calibrated based on insights derived from a significant number of test-takers who are well-versed in that skill area. Our inherent feedback systems and built-in algorithms enable our SMEs to refine our tests continually.
