You thought you knew CES EduPack?

with Prof. Mike Ashby


Join this web seminar on Weds, March 12, presented by Prof. Ashby (Emeritus Professor, Cambridge University Engineering Department, and Granta founder), to see how the new developments in CES EduPack 2014 can support your materials-related teaching in science, engineering, design, bio-engineering, and sustainability. If you've used CES EduPack before, see how it's changed in recent years in light of feedback from the user community; if you are completely new to it, come and see why nearly 1000 universities and colleges are using CES EduPack to support their teaching. Read about the presenter below...

Please note, this live broadcast will cover the same materials as February's session, but timed to suit those in other time zones.

  • Hear about the latest developments in CES EduPack, providing enhanced usability and helping students explore the world of materials and apply this knowledge in their learning and project work..
  • Discover design challenges you can try with your students, introducing real-world materials challenges alongside material selection concepts.
  • Explore the breadth of subject areas that CES EduPack can support, including mechanical engineering, architecture, and polymer engineering. You'll also get an overview of the new Bioengineering and Sustainability Editions.
  • See the new Granta Teaching Resources Website, providing access to hundreds of exercises, teaching aids (PowerPoints, databases, and more), and background reading material on the topic of materials across many different disciplines.
  • Learn how CES EduPack can provide an interdisciplinary materials data resource across departments and throughout all years of study.
  • Find out about Granta's involvement in the world-wide materials education community.

Who should join the web seminar?
