Virtual Open House on Predictive Multiscale Materials Design

Title: Predictive Multiscale Materials Design
Date: Thursday, April 4, 2024
Time: 12:00 PM EDT
Duration: 1 hour
Instructor: Markus J. Buehler

The emergence of new technologies is revolutionizing the field of materials design. Machine learning, cloud computing, additive manufacturing, and more are now at the fingertips of materials scientists. Adopting these computational tools into your flow of work will assist in creating the next generation of smart materials, from the molecular scale upward.

Predictive Multiscale Materials Design, a five-day bootcamp led by Professor Markus J. Buehler, will teach materials scientists how to make better materials with the help of technology, ultimately using fewer resources and less energy.
