Author Erik Tempelman presenting at recent Granta Design Materials Education Symposia

By: , Posted on: April 30, 2014

On Thursday April 10th Erik Tempelman presented a session on Manufacturing and Design – towards a new educational paradigm at the 6th International Materials Education Symposium at University of Cambridge. Here he is seen presenting a copy of the book to Mike Ashby, co-founder of Granta Design, who organized the symposium, together with c0-author Hugh Shercliff:


Erik has developed a course, and written a textbook, that integrates concepts of manufacturing and design for students of engineering or design. According to Erik, teaching manufacturing can sometimes seem like reciting an encyclopedia of different processes, when students should be learning about manufacturing in the context of design choices.
