Teaching with industrial case studies – Aerospace and Automotive

with Dr. Claes Fredriksson and Luca Masi

Join this web seminar on Thursday, October 15 to find out how students can gain valuable transferable skills by using CES EduPack for project work. The session will help educators in their teaching through industrial case studies, providing real-life examples of the importance of materials.

Join this web seminar to:
  • Hear about the key materials challenges and concerns within the Automotive and Aerospace sectors
  • Find out how your students can get quick access to reliable industry-standard data in a user-friendly format
  • Explore advanced software tools to investigate materials and make material decisions, as used both in research and industry
  • Watch two case studies where CES EduPack is used for:
    • Finding and assessing lightweight replacements for metals
    • Considering materials for high temperature applications
