Electric vehicles: sustainability and critical materials

Join this webinar for an electric vehicle case study in which we’ll explore how to consider the full lifecycle of a product when making materials decisions. See how to apply this case study in teaching and learning.

What you will learn

  • See CES EduPack in action in a real-world case study
  • Understand the methods applied to tackle practical problems – we’ll focus on magnets and critical materials
  • Review the data available to support such case studies – on price, criticality, end-of-life, and environmental impact, as well as mechanical properties
  • Hear how such case study information is used to support teaching and learning about materials

Who should take part?

  • Anyone teaching materials in engineering, science, or design – particularly if you teach topics on materials selection or sustainability

About the presenters

Dr. Claes Fredriksson Dr. Claes Fredriksson has more than 15 years’ experience teaching Materials-related subjects to undergraduate and post graduate students in Sweden, Canada, Belgium and the U.S.A, mainly in Mechanical Engineering. After gaining an MSc in Engineering Physics and PhD in Theoretical Physics he worked in both theoretical and experimental research on polymers, metals and biomaterials. He has a passion for teaching and won a grant as part of Sweden’s Excellence in Teaching Programme to enable him to teach in the U.S.A. and facilitate the cross-pollination of pedagogical approaches.
Dr. Tatiana V Vakhitova Dr. Tatiana V Vakhitova. As a part of the Education Division, Tatiana contributes to teaching resources development in the area of Sustainable Development. Tatiana supports educational and research institutions in Central Europe, Eastern Europe, and Middle East. She holds a PhD in Engineering from the Centre for Sustainable Development and an MPhil from the Land Economy Department (University of Cambridge, UK).

About CES EduPack

CES EduPack is the world-leading teaching resource for materials in engineering, science, processing, and design. It provides a comprehensive database of materials and process information and powerful tools to visualise data, select materials, assess environmental impact, and model hybrid materials and the cost of manufacturing. A range of supporting lectures, projects, case studies, and exercises are provided via Granta’s Education Hub. With specialist editions for specific disciplines, and three levels of the database and software to suit varying needs in all years of undergraduate study and in postgraduate teaching, CES EduPack is a curriculum-wide resource.
