Event Website 

Granta is running a workshop and exhibiting at this event.

A spin-out from the University of Cambridge, Granta helps hundreds of engineering enterprises to manage information on the materials (metals, plastics, composites, and more) that are essential to their businesses. We help them to develop and apply material intelligence, making better materials decisions, saving time and money, and reducing risk as they optimize their products. We also provide supporting resources to thousands of university educators worldwide as they teach the next generation of engineers, scientists, and industrial designers about materials, processes, and sustainability.

Sign up for our workshop to find out more, or contact us to pre-arrange a meeting.

Granta for Education

FEMS 30th Anniversary Education Tutorial

Join us for this half-day tutorial celebrating the development of visual and interactive materials teaching resources. Professor Mike Ashby and Granta Design in Cambridge (UK) has been working in this area for nearly 30 years, almost as long as FEMS itself. The comprehensive databases on materials and processes, the engaging Ashby property charts, and the sophisticated tools for materials selection, environmental impact assessment and hybrid material development have evolved with the help of feedback from Academics around the world, into world-leading teaching resources.

In this Tutorial you will:

  • Gain practical knowledge and skills on using our materials-related databases for Material Science and Engineering courses
  • Get insights and tips on how to visualize properties in Ashby charts and make use of these
  • Share teaching experiences with peers
  • See Case Studies, Exercises, Lecture Units and other teaching resources available for educators
  • Receive a 1 month free trial of CES EduPack
