Granta Design (Cambridge, U.K.) announced a wide-ranging series of free web seminars on topics related to materials information and materials engineering for engineering enterprises and university-level educators. More than 20 new webinars will be provided over the next four months, offering key insights into how enterprises can better manage and use vital materials information, and sharing ideas about how to enhance the teaching of materials in the engineering curriculum.
For example, on Tuesday, Sept. 15, Granta’s collaborative project team will share experiences of supporting leading industry projects in areas including additive manufacturing and restricted substances in a webinar titled: ‘How to manage vital materials information for collaborative projects." On Thursday, Sept. 24, the group will demonstrate the newly-launched CES Selector 2016 software, showing how to use new features to estimate part costs at an early stage in the design process. Then on Wednesday, Nov. 4, Cambridge University Professor Mike Ashby will talk about ‘Green engineering in a resource constrained world.'
