Session outcomes

  • Discover the basics of systematic materials selection methodology, teaching transferable skills to your students. This includes hands-on exercises
  • Delve deeper into material selection methodology by examining an advance industrial case study
  • Discuss ideas of how best to teach materials-related topics
  • Learn how to engage students using our interactive, visual software, with access to reliable materials data including hands-on exercises
  • Gain insight into advanced teaching data and tools, as well as a sneak peak of the future CES EduPack developments that are being worked on.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone teaching materials or related subjects in engineering, science, design, or sustainable development
  • Educators who are not yet using CES EduPack – what is it, and how can it support your teaching?
  • Educators who are using CES EduPack – what’s new?
  • Educators across campus and throughout the college and University curriculum

“I have used the advanced industrial case studies in my engineering design course, deriving assignments and an exam question from one of the case study papers. It worked very well and the students greatly benefitted from the authenticity and relevance of the case study.”
Marian Kozlowski, RWTH Aachen University

About CES EduPack

Originating from Professor Mike Ashby's work at Cambridge University and used by 1000+ worldwide, including Jönköping University, TU Delft, IUT Lyon, CES EduPack enhances the teaching of materials at all levels of university education across Engineering, Science, and Design.

About the presenters

Dr. Claes Fredriksson, Granta Design

Dr. Claes Fredriksson, Granta Design Claes is the Senior Materials Education Consultant – responsible for workshops and courses, at Granta in Cambridge. He 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 spending several years at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. 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. Claes works with academics across the world, collaborating on producing teaching resources and running CES EduPack training. He is also an Associate Professor of Materials Science.
