Free ticketed event
In this workshop you will:
• Gain practical knowledge and skills regarding Eco-data and Eco-informed materials selection
• Get insights and tips on how to teach lifecycle thinking via the eco-audit methodology
• Learn about problem-based sustainable development assessment for engineering education.
• See case studies, exercises, lecture units, and other teaching resources available for educators
You will be given access to CES EduPack, All Editions for one month so that you can work through case studies and exercises. Please bring a PC with you.
The 5-step methodology to evaluate the sustainable development of technologies that we will present can be used in teaching interdisciplinary courses with politics, business, and engineering students working together. It has been developed by Granta Design in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Cambridge (UK), and Barcelona (UPC).
Dr. Claes Fredriksson
The Workshop will be led by Dr. Claes Fredriksson, who is a Senior Materials Education Consultant responsible for Training at Granta Design in Cambridge (UK). He has more than 15 years’ experience teaching Materials-related subjects to undergraduate and post graduate students in Sweden, Canada, Belgium and the U.S.A, mainly in Mechanical Engineering. After gaining an MSc in Engineering Physics and PhD in Theoretical Physics he worked in both theoretical and experimental research on polymers, metals and biomaterials (at Chalmers). He has a passion for teaching and won a grant as part of Sweden’s Excellence in Teaching Programme to enable him to teach in the U.S.A. and facilitate the cross-pollination of pedagogical approaches. Claes is an Associate Professor and works with academics across the world, collaborating on producing teaching resources and running CES EduPack training.
Luca Masi is an Aerospace Engineer working at Granta Design as Senior Business Development Manager. He has run materials selection short courses at universities (Georgia Tech, Northwestern University, Boston University, UC Irvine) and conferences (TMS, ASEE). Before joining Granta, he has collaborated with the French Space Agency on software development for bio-inspired space trajectory optimization, and on computational techniques for multi-objective optimization as part of his PhD at the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde (UK). He is author of several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters for AIAA and IEEE on these subjects. He also has R&D industrial experience in spacecraft propulsion systems. Luca also holds a Master’s Degree (first class) in Space Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Pisa (Italy).
