Consumer electronics: Materials for a Tablet

Consumer electronics has a huge impact on the global economy, the environment, and people's daily lives. More than a billion mobile phones are sold every year, and laptops and tablets are not far behind.

In this webinar, we use CES EduPack to explore several aspects of the materials in a modern-day tablet device and benchmark options for the backplate casing from a mechanical and sustainability perspective. Using this case study, you will be able to engage students with the effects of material decisions on modern products as well as how to make them effectively.

What you will learn

  • How to take a rational and systematic approach to materials selection
  • How to find useful eco-sustainability data and tools for green engineering and eco design
  • How to make informed materials-related decisions in many specialized areas
  • How to explore the effects on performance from material decisions, using the example of a tablet device
Consumer Electronics

Who should take part?

  • Anyone teaching materials in engineering, science, or design
