Teaching introductory materials science and engineering courses

Hear leading materials educator Professor Mike Ashby discuss key principles for teaching introductory courses in materials science and engineering. During this live web seminar, we’ll demonstrate a new Package of resources that supports the teaching of processing, structure, and properties, and their inter-relationships.

What you will learnCES EduPack Materials Science and Engineering Package

  • Hear about the role of ‘Introduction to Materials’ and common teaching resources in creating connections campus-wide
  • Find out about the new Materials Science and Engineering Package for CES EduPack 2018
  • Go on a tour of this new Package, including functional and bio materials as well as structural ones, an interactive Phase Diagram Tool, and resources to visualize the connection between processing, structure, and properties
  • Learn how you can provide input to further development of the Package, ensuring that it evolves with your teaching needs.

Who should take part?

  • Educators teaching “Introduction to Materials” courses at universities and colleges
  • Deans and department heads interested in resources that support teaching and promote connections throughout the curriculum

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. The new Materials Science & Engineering package is available to all licensed users of CES EduPack 2018 and adds data, resources, and tools to help you teach the relationship between process, structure, and properties. 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.
