Materials in Mechanical Design and
Manufacturing: The view of textbook

Join us on October 18 to hear from respected Textbook Authors Robert Mott and Jywhen Wang. What do students of mechanical design and manufacturing need to know about materials and their properties to successfully design and manufacture mechanical devices? You’ll also see how Granta teaching resources can help.

What you will learn

  • Learn from leaders in materials education – Robert Mott and Jywhen Wang are the authors of widely-respected textbooks
  • Understand why materials knowledge is crucial for Mechanical Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers and Engineering Technologists
  • See how you can support learning by giving students quick access to reliable materials property data through CES EduPack.

Who should take part?

  • University and college lecturers teaching materials as part of Mechanical Engineering, Design, Manufacturing, or similar courses.
