Advanced Materials Training Workshop, a Short Course by Tonex


Advanced Materials Workshop, a Short Course, is a 2-day introduction to materials that are specifically engineered to exhibit novel or enhanced properties that confer superior performance relative to conventional materials.

This course is especially beneficial for individuals and organizations who want to see the “big picture” in order to communicate with technical as well as non-technical individuals.

Advanced Materials covers the most important aspects without getting too involved in the technical nitty gritty.

Participants will learn about current and projected advanced materials and their industrial applications.

Additionally, participants will explore what makes a material “advanced” and the advantages they bring as well as innovation.

Advanced materials offer major improvements in a wide variety of different fields such as aerospace, transport, building and healthcare. In the Department of Defense, materials that have higher strength, lighter weight, higher efficiency, and can handle more extreme temperatures have the potential to better protect service members and enhance their ability to accomplish their missions.
