Advanced Technologies for Materials Processing
13 — 18 JULY, 2020
The course is held online
Enjoy a 40% discount for the tuition fee of winter and summer on-campus programs in 2021*
*Available only for students who will have participated in the online courses of a relevant field of study in summer 2020.
We welcome students to come to a wonderful city of St. Petersburg, the cultural heart of Russia as well as a major trade gateway, financial and industrial center. Studying in St. Petersburg is a great experience which will contribute significantly to the student’s future success.
Online lectures will be delivered synchronized as live talk with professors and groupmates. Records of classes will be available on SPbPU platform for 1 month after the course end.
The School provides the unique opportunity to attend intensive academic program, which is focused on the processing technologies (PT) and joining techniques (JT) with experience of professors from European countries, with different opinions and approaches. The two-weeks School is divided in two blocks: Basics and Advanced. First block will give you the theoretical knowledge, basic descriptions of the technologies and an overview of their applications. Second block consists in advanced topics on these technologies based on state-of-the-art practice based activities in research laboratories and deep aspects of the material microstructure evolutions during processing. The program will cover: PT and JT, powder production and characterization, metallurgical and mechanical properties, residual stresses and post-treatements. The school program is suitable for students and engineers interested in these technologies and topics. All studies are developed in accordance with the European requirements and can be recognized as a period of study abroad.
PT and JT Basics
First part of the course dedicated to the introduction of concepts, technologies, influence of process parameters on metallurgical and mechanical properties and characterization techniques. Could be attended by everyone who would like to have a general overview in PT and JT.
Advanced topics in PT and JT
Technical topics and challenges in PT and JT (laser-matter interaction, friction induced plastic strains, fast solidification, phase transformations and process simulation) for people who attended the first week and/or senior engineers and scientists.
Ects credits: 2.0
Participation fee: 10 700 Rubles
Upon successful completion of the course students will receive hard copies of certificates with ECTS credits mailed by post.
Socio-cultural program of extracurricular activities and networking events are included*:
- Online International Party;
- Online Pub Quiz;
