Granta for Education

Granta provides resources and support for anyone teaching materials or related topics across the full range of disciplines in engineering, science, and design. We also help coordinate a series of annual Materials Education Symposia, including the upcoming North American Material Education Symposium at the University of California, Berkeley. If you would like to meet with us to discuss materials education topics or find out more about the Symposium, please contact us.

Granta for Industry

A spin-out from the University of Cambridge, Granta helps hundreds of engineering enterprises to manage information on the materials (metals, plastics, composites, and more) that are essential to their businesses. We help them to develop and apply material intelligence, making better materials decisions, saving time and money, and reducing risk as they optimize their products. We also provide supporting resources to thousands of university educators worldwide as they teach the next generation of engineers, scientists, and industrial designers about materials, processes, and sustainability.

Professional Development Course

Interactive Materials Data Visualization and Selection Tools for Research and Teaching Workshop

Sunday, February 26
8:30am - 12pm

Register directly with TMS

Explore Software Tools for Materials-Related Critical Decision-Making in Industry, Research, and Education

In this hands-on workshop, you will access a comprehensive library of materials data; discover tools to help chart and analyze property data; and support better materials decisions using a systematic multi-objective material selection approach.

You will learn how to find technical materials property data (metals, ceramics, polymers, composites) and processes data (e.g., additive manufacturing). The instructors will also show how this data can be used for materials selection in research and teaching activities taking into account conflicting objectives, e.g., minimizing mass or cost and maximizing performance. Elements of sustainable development and green engineering will be taken into account as well.

A time-limited license of the CES Selector software will be distributed before the workshop for attendees’ own Windows laptops. Attendees will also get access to Granta Design’s extensive materials education teaching resource community.
