Interest Codes
The Metallurgist is part of the following larger National Occupational Classification (NOC).
Metallurgists
INNOVATIVE

Interest in synthesizing information to evaluate variables that influence physical and thermoelectric properties of unusual metals, and to assess the properties of metals during processes such as rolling, extruding, casting, forming, welding, corrosion protection, alloying, heat and mechanical treatments; and in developing hotworking and cooling processes to obtain desired characteristics such as hardness, grain size, heat resistance and strength

OBJECTIVE

Interest in precision working with instruments to test alloys in tension, compression, impact bending and fatigue devices to study their engineering properties and ensure that they will comply with prescribed standards

DIRECTIVE

Interest in consulting to advise on the shortcomings of metals in use and anticipated use; and in training mill testers and inspectors; may supervise and co-ordinate the work of technologists and technicians

Reading Interest Codes
A Quick Guide

The interest code helps you figure out if you’d like to work in a particular occupation.
