Join Professor Mike Ashby for an introduction to the new Materials Science and Engineering Edition of CES EduPack 2019. With a focus on interactive learning, hear how visual tools, such as the Interactive Phase Diagram, can be used to engage students on Callister-based introductory courses.

“The Phase Diagram Tool is an extremely valuable interactive simulation that effectively demonstrates, to users, the interpretation of phase diagrams and how this information may be applied to understanding the development of microstructure.” – Prof. Bill Callister
