Preparing Engineering Students for Industry

CES EduPack 2017 — Introducing students to Materials

with Prof Mike Ashby and Hannah Melia

Join this web seminar on Thursday, February 9 to learn about how to prepare engineering students for industry by engaging them in materials topics. Discover how the new CES EduPack 2017 will help students to understand industrial concerns and use industrially relevant tools.

Join this web seminar to:

  • Discover how to show students the value of learning about materials through products, interactive charts and advanced industrial case studies
  • Explore new tools and images that will allow students to:
    • Compare costs dependent on the processing route
    • Connect processes and their uses to manufacturing
  • See where to find advanced, realistic data, fully-developed case studies, and other online student resources to support self-study
  • Find out about the new Products, Materials and Processes database, which will be made available to all users of CES EduPack after the great feedback from its pre-release.

How to register and join the session

There is no cost but registration is required through the WebEx system. Please ensure you set your local time zone to receive accurate meeting invitations and test your setup in advance of the meeting. How to use WebEx, including setting times zone & language preferences
