Learn about metal injection moulding at the EPMA PM Summer School 2009

March 3, 2009

Following the success of the European Powder Metallurgy Association’s (EPMA) EU funded PM Training Courses, the association has announced the 2009 PM Summer School.

The event will take place in Košice, Slovakia, from Monday 22nd June to Friday 26th June 2009. Students will benefit from over 25 presentations covering both conventional PM and Metal Injection Moulding. Half a day of laboratory work will be hosted by the Institute of Materials Research, Slovak Academy of Sciences.

“The EPMA Summer School is particularly designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists drawn from a wide range of disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing and metallurgy” said Joan Hallward, Project Coordinator. “The course will offer the students an advanced teaching of Powder Metallurgy’s advantages and limitations by some of the leading academic and industrial figures in Europe.”

The course is open to graduates under the age of 35 who are citizens of the EU or an EU associated state. The participation fee for the 5-day training course is €295 per person. For this non-refundable fee participants will receive all relevant course documents plus refreshments, meals and accommodation.

Previous EPMA summer schools were over-subscribed and the association therefore urges all applications to be submitted in good time, with a final closing date of Monday 6th April 2009.
