Aurum Guest Lecture series is one of Mettle'22's prized possessions. With the guests of honour hailing from various fields of Metallurgy and Materials, the series is an absolute gold mine of interesting information about the industry, research prospects and what not. To get to know what the future holds for mankind, to be aware of the mind boggling innovations in the world of engineering, this series is the gateway for all the budding metallurgists out there. So always be on the lookout as we have some very exciting guest lectures lined up for the semester
PROF RAMAMOORTHY RAMESH
SKYRMIONS: A NEW ERA IN FERROELECTRICS
With over 65,000 citations, our distinguished guest is a pioneer in the field of manganites and electric field control of ferromagnetism. He's an elected member of the US National Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society of London. He's a recipient of the TMS Bardeen Prize, the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Prize among several other laurels.
Dr Wei Xiong
Calphad based Metallurgical Design for Alloy Manufacturing
Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) has become a workhorse for optimising the design of materials for future applications. One tool in this vastly powerful approach is the CALPHAD method, which helps in identifying the thermodynamics and kinetics of different metallurgical systems. Move a step high, as Dr. Wei Xiong, from the University of Pittsburgh, explores the ins and outs of the ICME approach applied to the burgeoning field of additive manufacturing.
