Introducing Engineering Students to Materials

 October 7, 2020 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST
Online Webinar

Engineers solve critical problems and design new products. To accomplish this effectively, they need a strong understanding of materials and how they are used. Materials science, however, is a theory-heavy discipline, which can make learning the fundamentals less engaging and more challenging for new students. But it does not have to be that way.

Materials Selection for Mechanical Design

 October 28, 2020 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm GMT
Online Webinar

Mechanical engineers create exciting products and solve complex problems. Choosing the right materials is crucial to their success. With over 200,000 engineering materials now available, there are a lot to choose from. Teaching undergraduate students how to select the best materials is a challenge. Mike Ashby’s textbook “Materials Selection in Mechanical Design” introduces a powerful methodology for systematic material selection. Now in its fifth edition, the textbook has been adopted worldwide. Teaching students to apply this methodology is much easier when you have comprehensive materials data and suitable software tools.
