The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA)’s Young Engineers Day 2021 will take place virtually on September 9, 2021. Aimed at helping to foster and develop the next generation of PM academics and industrialists, the programme includes lectures on Powder Metallurgy, networking and a tour of the exhibition.
Introduced by the EPMA in 2014, Young Engineers Day is aimed particularly at those studying a subject related to PM, such as Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Engineering, and Business Administration and Engineering.
The programme includes the following:
