Understanding the concepts of design function, constraints and objectives is sometimes difficult for introductory-level students studying materials selection. CES EduPack can help their understanding by showing the logical selection steps that lead to an obvious conclusion – toy cars are not made from the same materials as real cars! Join this webinar for inspiration in how to demonstrate these inherent design challenges to students.

What you will learn

  • See how CES EduPack can be used to help students understand function, objectives and constraints in engineering design
  • Discover simple, engaging exercises that can help students understand complex design and manufacturing decisions
  • Explore a wealth of data on material properties, plus powerful selection tools and science notes for self-learning.

Who should take part?

  • Educators using or interested in using CES EduPack for introductory courses in mechanical engineering, design and manufacture.
