New Database: "Products, Materials and Processes" database

Engaged students learn more and are more enjoyable to teach. The new "Products, Materials and Processes" Database aims to inspire designers and engage engineers to learn more about materials and processes through products. This is a Pre-release database, available at no cost, this year, for all those using CES EduPack 2016. Watch the video to find out more.

Open Development

We develop CES EduPack in conjunction with the community of Materials Educators that use it. If you would like to see what we are working on and give us some feedback, visit our development web pages. We have recently created a prototype of a phase diagram tool. We are also looking forward to 2018 and working on a database to highlight the interactions between materials, properties and processes and how they affect design.

Training, Workshops and Courses

Webinars for educators using CES EduPack are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 4pm London time. These are designed as interactive events where you can ask questions and see directly how CES EduPack is used in teaching. Join us next week for "Getting Started with CES EduPack", or in February to see CES EduPack 2016 presented by Mike Ashby. Please encourage any colleagues new to CES EduPack this year to attend. CES EduPack is easy and intuitive to use. You don't need training, however workshops and courses present a good opportunity to go in depth and to discuss with your colleagues how you think CES EduPack can best suit your teaching. Upcoming workshops include those at the TMS conference in Nashville, USA, in February 2016 and focussed on Sustainability at the MRS conference in Phoenix, USA in March 2016. Short courses and workshops will also precede the Materials Education Symposia in Berkeley, USA, in March and Cambridge, UK, in April 2016.

CES EduPack and CES Selector: Tips and Tricks

CES Tip Download a database: Databases of Cars, Actuators, Amorphous Metals and more can be downloaded from the Teaching Resources Website. Once saved to your computer, open them in CES EduPack by clicking on Add Database in the change database screen. Download here »
CES Tip Modelling: People are using the Synthesizer to model more than just Hybrid Materials and their properties. Recent models include modelling copper deformation and estimating the cost of a part, including materials and up to two processes. You can read how to create your own models and put them in to CES EduPack here »
CES Tip CES EduPack 2016: The new version of CES EduPack 2016 should be ready by the end of January. Exciting developments include new chart annotation features that enable you to add trade-off curves and display lines. You can attend a Webinar to learn more. Register here »
