Event description

Description


2nd Postgraduate Research Symposium on Ferrous Metallurgy


26th February 2019, Armourers' Hall, Armourers & Brasiers' Company, London


Organised by: Materials Processing Institute with support from Armourers & Brasiers' Company and the Iron & Steel Society of IOM3.




This research symposium is open to students, academics, researchers and industry involved in materials, metals and process improvement.

The symposium gives PhD/EngDoc students, universities, researchers and businesses the opportunity to find out about the latest thinking on ferrous metallurgy.
