Kraków Prepares for 2014 EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School First Appearance

Press release date: February 19, 2014

The 14th EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School online registration is now open for students to apply. The 2014 EPMA-organised Summer School programme will be making its first appearance in Kraków, Poland, 16-20 June, courtesy of the Cracow University of Technology.  The 5-day residential course is one of the best ways to learn about powder metallurgy (PM) and related sectors for students and engineers new to the PM industry. The lectures are presented by a range of PM experts drawn from both industry and academia and with the 2014 programme being hosted by Professor Jan Kazior and his team at the Cracow University of Technology, it will make for an interesting and stimulating programme.

“Summer Schools are very intense, due to the depth and range of material covered during the 5-days”, explained Summer School Co-ordinator, Joan Hallward. She went on to add “EPMA Summer Schools benefit from the close links between academia and PM industry personnel, which helps to provide a complete picture of the industry to the students.”

This year’s content of topics to be covered will include Manufacture of Metal Powders, Metal Injection Moulding, Modelling, Sintering and Hot Isostatic Pressing to mention but a few.  Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems in the class room, as well as get hands on experience of the various PM processes in the Cracow University of Technology Laboratories. There will also be the opportunity to have theory put into practise, thanks to a visit to a local PM component manufacturer.

The Summer School programme, which is coordinated by Professor José Torralba from the University Carlos III in Madrid and Mrs Joan Hallward from the EPMA, is designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists from disciplines such as materials science, design engineers, 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 Euros575 covers tuition, all course materials, shared accommodation, a Welcome Reception and Summer School Dinner.
