Join this one-day of interactive training, providing an introduction to teaching with CES EduPack. The day will provide you with inspirational ideas and teaching resources that will help you to engage students in learning about materials, their use in engineering applications, and their relevance for life-cycle thinking and eco-design.

Originating from Professor Mike Ashby's work at Cambridge University and used by 200+ US Universities, including Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Northwestern, Georgia Tech, Purdue University, and University of Michigan, CES EduPack enhances the teaching of materials at all levels of university education across Engineering, Science and Design.

All academics with an interest in teaching in materials-related areas, such as engineering, material science, and design are invited.

"The workshop turned out to be a very productive day for me. I strongly recommend that my colleagues, both beginners and seasoned users, participate in the upcoming users workshop. You will learn a great deal, and I guarantee that you won’t be bored!"
Professor David Pope, University of Pennsylvania
