Graduates can now register for this year’s EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School, which takes place from 27 June–1 July 2016, in Valencia, Spain.
The five-day residential course will include a range of lectures given by PM experts drawn from both industry and academia and will cover the whole range of powder metallurgy from powder to finished product. Topics include additive manufacturing, hot isostatic pressing, metal injection moulding, manufacture of metal powders, modelling and sintering. There will be problem solving sessions as well as hands-on experience in the university laboratories.
The Summer School is designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists from disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing or metallurgy. Graduates under 35 who have obtained their degree from a European institution are eligible to apply.
After seven years at the helm, Professor José Torralba, formerly of IMDEA Materials Institute, will step down as technical coordinator and in his place Dr Marco Actis Grande from the Politecnico di Torino and Dr Christian Gierl-Mayer of the Technical University of Vienna will jointly manage the technical aspect of the Summer Schools with logistics support by Mrs Joan Hallward of the EPMA.
The fee of €575 covers tuition, all course materials, accommodation, a welcome reception and Summer School dinner. To register for a place go here and complete the online application form. Places are limited so please apply early. The submission deadline is 22 April 2016.
