Learning about composites
and hybrids

Improving materials performance


Join this web seminar on Thursday, August 31 to find out how to support the introduction of key concepts in composites and hybrid materials in your teaching. Help students to understand the opportunities and challenges of using these materials in design.


What you will learn

  • Share inspirational ideas for introducing students to composites and hybrid materials
  • Understand the advantages and limitations of composites, and the opportunities for using hybrid materials in design
  • See material selection case studies where composites are considered
  • Find out how to use the Synthesizer Tool in the CES EduPack software to explore the benefits of using different hybrid materials and structures.

Who should take part?

  • Educators teaching material science at any level, especially in a curriculum with hybrid materials majors
  • Academics interested in materials selection for improved performance.
