Introducing CES EduPack for 2013

with Prof. Mike Ashby

You thought you knew CES EduPack...

Please join this web seminar on Wednesday, February 13 to see how you can enrich your teaching in science, engineering, design, and sustainability with CES EduPack 2013. If you've used CES EduPack before, see how it's changed in recent years in light of feedback from the user community; if you are completely new to it, come and see why over 800 universities and colleges are using CES EduPack to support their teaching. You'll also be able to put your questions to Prof. Ashby and the Granta Education Team.

Design challenges you can try with your students, such as using CES EduPack to select materials for an automobile roof-top carrier.

The breadth of subject areas that CES EduPack can support, including mechanical engineering, architecture, polymer engineering, and bio-engineering. You'll see the new interdisciplinary resource; the Sustainability Database.

How new features in 2013 can support your teaching:

  • Search with material intelligenceGet to the right data quickly: a new search engine, new start screen, and greater differentiation between levels of data give students rapid access to the information they need.
  • New video tutorials get students started quickly: bite-sized demonstrations show them what they need, and offer tips and tricks.
  • Latest developments to the Teaching Resources Website, a collection of hundreds of exercises, teaching aids (PowerPoints, databases, and more...), and background reading material on the topic of materials across many different disciplines and for all years of study.
