Wolfson Centre - Range of powder handling short courses for 2014

The setting up of equipment for the characterisation of metal powders

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology, part of the School of Engineering at the University of Greenwich, UK, is running a programme of short courses throughout 2014 designed to attract engineers from industry working in the area of bulk solids handling or the flow of powders.

The Wolfson Centre has been delivering short courses for over 25 years, both at the university and in the workplace. Over this time it has developed strong links with industry, offering consultancy, research projects and short courses that combine technological excellence with personalised teaching.

Course are aimed at engineers, managers, skilled operatives, maintenance crew or anyone involved in using powders or particulates. Many of the courses now include practical sessions to help delegates consolidate the theory.
