JEC World CAMPUS : Showcasing Universities and Institutes Trainings

Each year, the universities and training centers of JEC World's CAMPUS come on stage to pitch their programs !

The composite materials industry is growing and evolving rapidly, with new materials, technologies, and applications emerging all the time. Universities and training institutes have an important role to play in preparing the current and next generation of engineers and scientists to work in this dynamic field. In this session, our partners will present their composite materials’ related trainings and the opportunities and challenges of proposing and implementing such programs. Topics will include the need for such trainings, the types of courses and the resources and infrastructure required. Representatives from renowned universities and institutes will share their experiences for developing and strengthening composite materials education at all levels.
