Proves two famous theorems attributed to J.H.M. Wedderburn, which concern the structure of noncommutative rings. The two theorems include, (1) how any semisimple Artinian ring is the direct sum of a finite number of simple rings; and, (2) the Wedderburn-Artin Theorem. Proofs in this paper follow those outlined in I.N. Herstein's monograph Noncommutative Rings with examples and details provided by the author.
