2013 EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School

The EPMA Summer School now in its 13th year is a 5 day residential experience, consisting of a series of technical lectures presented by a range of PM experts drawn from both industry and academia.


The annual EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School, which this year will be held in Trento/IT, 8–12 July, online registration is now available. The 2013 Summer School will be hosted by Prof. Alberto Molinari and his team from the University of Trento. “This is a great opportunity for students and people new to the powder metallurgy industry as it will provide a good foundation of know­-ledge to build on” explained Joan Hallward, Summer School Coordin­ator. Topics to be covered will include Manufacture of Metal Powders, Metal Injection Moulding, Modelling, Sintering and Hot Iso­-static Pressing to mention but a few. Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems as well as get hands on experience of various PM processes in the University labora­tories. Within the programme there will also be the opportunity to visit a PM component manufacturer. The Summer School, which is coord­inated by Prof. José Torralba from the University Carlos III in Madrid/ES and Joan Hallward from the 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 week long Summer School course will take place at Trento University, one of Italy’s more highly ranked universities, in the city of Trento. Trento is located on the inter­section of important roads leading to Lake Garda, the Dolomites, Venice, Verona, Bolzano and Innsbruck, making it accessible to delegates from throughout Europe.
