Freeman of the Department of Metallurgical and Chemical Engineering, University 'of Michigan, will present a 2-weeks course in metallurgy at the Baytown Refinery in the Humble Lectures in Engineering series beginning Jan. 11. His class will include 18 members of engineering and mechanical divisions at the refinery and one from geophysics research department in Houston. The course is intended to assist the participants in selecting materials and specifying methods of fabrication which will affect the strength and general usability of the products. It will deal to some extent with the fundamentals of metallurgy, but will emphasize recent developments in processing techniques, particularly in petroleum refining.

After his release from the Navy, Dugat was employed in February, 1946, in the technical service division. Initially Dugat worked on technical problems associated with the production of solvents. In recent years he has worked primarily on engineering economics to define optimum operating procedures and to determine the cost of products that might be manufactured by alternate processing techniques. As a senior chemical engineer he will be concerned with econmic studies related to product quality improvemer''. Mr. and Mrs- Dugat live in Baytown at 703 East Humble street.
