What else can you do with CES EduPack?
Advanced databases and tools for Capstone Design courses

Are you teaching courses that include advanced design or engineering projects? In this webinar, we’ll introduce materials data and tools that support these projects, encouraging and enabling students to critically-compare material and processing options.

Polymers Sustainability Bioengineering Aerospace engineering Architecture Product design Mechanical engineering

What you will learn

  • How the materials data and tools available in CES EduPack can be applied in capstone design and other advanced student projects
  • How the Eco Audit Tool Plus can be used to assess a product lifecycle
  • How the Synthesizer tool can be used to create models, for example, to study the properties of composite systems
  • How to compare the cost of manufacturing routes
  • What specialist data is available for applications including biomaterials, high-temperature design, aerospace and composites, and polymers.

Who should take part?

  • Lecturers considering use of CES EduPack to support more advanced courses – or who are already using it in these courses and want to explore the full capabilities
