Applications for the European Powder Metallurgy Association’s 2017 Powder Metallurgy summer school will close on April 19. The popular event will take place in Grenoble, France, June 19–23, 2017, and is open to young scientists, designers and engineers looking to gain a broader knowledge and understanding of the Powder Metallurgy process and applications.
The five-day residential course consists of a range of lectures given by PM experts drawn from both industry and academia and will be held at the Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP). Topics to be covered will include the manufacture of metal powders, powder compaction, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), modelling, sintering, Hot Isostatic Pressing and Additive Manufacturing. Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems as well as get hands-on experience of various PM processes.
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 and who have obtained their degree from a European institution are eligible to apply.
Participants will receive all relevant course documents, accommodation, refreshments, a Welcome Reception on June 19 and a Summer School Dinner on June 22, plus 18 months’ Student Membership of the EPMA, which enables members to obtain discounted rates at the Euro PM2017 Congress & Exhibition to take place in Milan, Italy, October 1-4, 2017.
