The Centre for Collaboration and Partnership at the University of Brighton is running two polymers short courses this autumn, Thermoplastics Materials and Plastic Product Design and Manufacture. These courses are delivered by Peter Cracknell who is highly knowledgeable and very experienced in polymer technology having been employed by industry and taught in the London School of Polymer Technology. The courses will be held in the Cockcroft Building on the university’s campus at Moulsecoomb, Brighton.
Brief details are below and more information can be found through following the weblinks.
15-17 October 2012
A short course for those wishing to learn more about thermoplastics materials. It explains the nature of these materials, their key mechanical properties, how these properties are applied to design applications and how these materials are selected. The course assumes no prior knowledge and will benefit both those new to the subject, those who wish to extend their existing knowledge or those who are working in a polymer product design related area.
Plastic Product Design and Manufacture
19-21 November 2012
A three-day short course for those wishing to learn about plastic product design and manufacture which will give participants knowledge of the polymer factors which influence design, plastic shaping methods, polymer product design theory, polymer project management, prototyping and product assembly and finishing techniques. The course will benefit both those new to the subject or those who wish to extend their existing knowledge of plastic product design, plastics materials, polymer processing or who are working in a polymer product design related area.
We are able to offer a limited number of bursaries to support people from small companies (fewer than 50 employees) attending our courses – please see http://www.brighton.ac.uk/ccp/short-courses-and-cpd/bursaries-for-short-courses/ for details and can offer discounted prices when more than one person attends from the same organisation.
