Utilising the potential of lightweight materials

Reducing the weight of structures has become a critical point of focus for many different sectors, such as machine building, transportation and civil construction. The appropriate handling of raw materials in lightweight design structures is the key success factor for preserving resources and reducing costs. Unfortunately, practical experience often shows that designing and handling rules for new materials are not being respected. The professional training concept underlying in the Lightweight Professional courses addresses this issues.

Developed by leading European lightweight material experts, the Lightweighting Professional programme enables participants to fully utilise the potential of lightweight strategies.

What will you learn in this programme?

Participants will be able to identify and differentiate the steps involved in developing lightweight products. They will learn how to use, design, construct and set up processes with specific lightweight materials in the correct way to fully utilise the potential of lightweight strategies.

Is this course for you?

The courses are aimed at employees in industry whose work involves planning the manufacture of lightweight products, and at employers who want to start manufacturing products based on lightweight concepts. The basic level is designed for managers, engineers and technical staff. The advanced and expert levels are for technical experts.
