MS&T18 Professional Development Courses

TMS will hold five workshops and short courses in conjunction with the Materials Science & Technology 2018 Technical Meeting & Exhibition (MS&T18) in Columbus, Ohio, on October 14. You can register for any of these courses through the MS&T18 registration form. Please note that you do not have to register for the full MS&T conference to participate in one of these workshops or courses.

Characterization of Material and Energy Device with Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

The focus of this one-day course is to improve the understanding of EIS and technical communication among graduates, chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and engineers for a better application of EIS techniques in material characterization and the performance/aging process of energy devices, degradation of coatings, and biomaterials.

Corrosion: Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Characterization, and Testing

This course will look at the impact of corrosion, particularly on infrastructure and industry, as well as at methods of testing and assessing this impact. It will be useful for metallurgists and materials scientists and engineers in any field impacted by corrosion.

Emerging Technologies in High-Temperature Applications

This one-day course will support the strong high-temperature-related technical programming available at MS&T18 and will take a deeper look into the impacts of emerging technologies and their effect on three major sectors: academia, government, and industry.

Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes Workshop

The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with current AM processes; current AM practice for metals, polymers, and ceramics; modeling of AM processes, microstructural evolution, and service properties; and current challenges and research opportunities.

Hands-On Additive Manufacturing Workshop

This workshop will provide a survey of multiple metal additive manufacturing processes. Participants will have the opportunity to not only see, but also to touch, smell, and hear the various processes in action and observe the construction of relevant parts being built.
