Abstract

Powder processing education and engineering education, in general, are in need of significant changes in order to make future engineers better equipped to handle the needs of rapidly changing technology and global competition. The views of P/M experts from industry, academia and national laboratories were sought in a recent TMS symposium in an attempt to define some of these needs. Consistent with some of the critical needs emphasized, professors and students at Iowa State University are developing a unique flexible modular concept for promoting undergraduate education in powder processing. The approach consists of developing computer based course modules in specialized processes that emphasize application and industrial practice before designing model experiments and exploring fundamental concepts. Several such modules are being developed with emphasis on ceramic and metal powder processing.
