Join this one-day workshop for inspirational ideas and teaching resources that will help you to engage students in learning about materials and their use in engineering and design applications.

Session outcomes

  • Discover the basics of systematic materials selection methodology, teaching transferable skills to your students. This includes hands-on exercises
  • Delve deeper into material selection methodology by examining an advance industrial case study
  • Discuss ideas of how best to teach materials-related topics
  • Learn how to engage students using our interactive, visual software, with access to reliable materials data including hands-on exercises
  • Gain insight into advanced teaching data and tools, as well as a sneak peak of the future CES EduPack developments that are being worked on.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone teaching materials or related subjects in engineering, science, design, or sustainable development
  • Educators who are not yet using CES EduPack – what is it, and how can it support your teaching?
  • Educators who are using CES EduPack – what’s new?
  • Educators across campus and throughout the college and University curriculum

 

“The workshop turned out to be a very productive day for me. I strongly recommend that my colleagues, both beginners and seasoned users, participate in the upcoming users workshop. You will learn a great deal, and I guarantee that you won’t be bored!”

Professor David Pope, University of Pennsylvania

Presenters


Luca Masi is a Principal Development Manager at Granta Design, and Aerospace Engineer with R&D experience in multi-objective optimization and bio-inspired computational techniques for automatic design of interplanetary space trajectories (University of Strathclyde, software development for CNES and Thales Alenia Space), as well as spacecraft propulsion (Alta-Space, Universita’ di Pisa).

For the past five years, Luca has run several materials selection workshops and lectures at leading US universities (Georgia Tech, Arizona State, MIT, University of Michigan, etc.), and has published technical papers and book chapters for AIAA, IEEE, Acta Astronautica, and others.


Dr. Lakshana Mohee completed a PhD in the Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials at the Department of Materials and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. Her technical background is collagen scaffolds for tissue engineering, as well as other bioengineering areas. Currently at Granta, she supports Universities in Canada, Sweden, and Poland, as well as parts of the USA. She was born in Mauritius and moved to France for her undergraduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering in a French Engineering School called INSA Rennes. She completed her Master’s Degree in Biomaterials at the same institution. During her studies, she had research internships in Canada and Singapore, and an industrial placement in Mauritius.
