The Royce Student Summit presents the opportunity for the UK Materials PhD and EngD community to come together to share ideas, network and learn more about transitioning from doctoral study to the next steps on the career ladder.   This year, we are delighted to host the summit at the recently opened Royce Hub Building at The University of Manchester on the 13th and 14th September 2022. Where possible, we will stream and record talks, and offer virtual attendance to the workshops.
Material Characterization Additive Manufacturing Seminar
13 September 2022    
9:00 am - 4:30 pm
The seminar will focus on the requirements and techniques used to characterise and qualify materials (and parts) for additive manufacturing - polymers, composites, and metals, followed by practical introductions from Netzsch and Malvern Panalytical to their key characterisation tools for additive manufacturing.
Transfer-printing for heterogeneous integration in manufacturing
15 September 2022    
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The ambition of Hetero-print is to deliver micro- and nano-transfer printing as the technology for the versatile and scalable manufacture of heterogeneous materials, structures and devices. In achieving this, we will introduce significant new capabilities for the manufacture of electronic, photonic, and other systems, which complement and are synergistic with those of established semiconductor mass-manufacturing methods including vacuum deposition and solution processing.
