Bioengineering – preparing students for real-life challenges Bioengineering – preparing students for real-life challenges
In this live webinar, we’ll show how the Bioengineering Edition in CES EduPack can help students understand why some materials are more appropriate than others for particular applications. With support from science notes, video tutorials and learning resources, students can quickly work their way through materials selection exercises as demonstrated in the demo.

Using the WebEx system for Granta web seminars

Granta uses the WebEx system to support our web seminars and online training. Anyone with an Internet-connected computer should be able to join via a web browser. You can either stream the audio through your computer or (recommended for optimal performace) dial in using a telephone. The system should work well with most personal computers, but it is always worth testing it before your first attendance at an online event, as it may need to install some components in your browser.
