New Frontiers in Materials Processing Training and Learning
Materials processing engineering is currently considered to be an interdisciplinary engineering field. Learning and training in materials processing must therefore be accompanied by diverse sets of workshops and practical laboratory experiments. In general, the equipment which is required to be available in these laboratories or workshops is very expensive and can become obsolete within a few years. On the other hand, the continual evolution of materials inevitably drives change. However, innovative education techniques, based upon information and communications technologies, are currently under development, with the aim of improving the teaching of materials processing.
This special volume on New Frontiers in Materials Processing Learning and Training reports these latest developments and novel applications, and describes theoretical research and case studies related to innovative education as applied to materials processing.
This special volume is sure to encourage the further development of new learning and training techniques in this, and other, disciplines.
