University to hold 2015 Summer School on Materials Processing

The University is to host its first summer school on Materials Processing at the Department of Engineering from Monday 22 June to Friday 26 June.

The summer school has been organised by the Centre for Doctoral Training in Innovative Metal Processing (IMPaCT). Leicester was chosen as the lead institution for the IMPaCT, which brings together world-class metals research teams from the universities of Birmingham and Nottingham along with 14 industrial and international partners.

Over the five days of the summer school, guest lecturers are lined up to lead morning and afternoon sessions.

There will also be a session of presentations from CDT students with a group discussion for all attendees.

IMPaCT trains future technical leaders for the aerospace and energy sectors and was set up as part of a £350 million Government initiative to train over 3,500 post graduate students in engineering and physical sciences. The funding, targeted at areas vital to economic growth, was allocated by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The summer school is a free event.
