The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that its 2015 Powder Metallurgy Summer School will take place in Sheffield, United Kingdom, from June 8-12, 2015. The five-day residential course will offer students and engineers new to the Powder Metallurgy (PM) industry the chance to learn about the PM process and related sectors.
The summer school will be hosted by Mr Denzil Lawrence from the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Professor Iain Todd and his team at the University of Sheffield. Topics to be covered include the manufacture of metal powders, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), modelling, sintering, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) and metal Additive Manufacturing (AM). Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems in the class room as well as gain hands on experience of various PM processes in the University laboratories. There will also be the opportunity to visit a PMcomponent manufacturer.
The Summer School, coordinated by Professor José Torralba, University Carlos III, Madrid, Spain, and Mrs Joan Hallward, EPMA, 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.
The Summer School fee of €575 covers tuition, all course materials, shared accommodation, a Welcome Reception and Summer School Dinner.
