Themed "Schmiedewerk", student teams are called to forge a sword and characterize its quality by means of suitable characterization methods. Thus providing the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge from lectures to an exciting and practical example. The teams will have time produce and characterize their sword until summer 2018. The final of the competition will then take place at the MSE congress in Darmstadt in September 2018. A sponsorship to participate at the American material science conference "TMS Annual Meeting" in Spring 2019 in Texas will be granted to the winning team! There, the students have the opportunity to compete in the international "Bladesmithing Competition" and to gain first experiences at an international conference. Many other great prizes will be awarded!
Registration will be open from 25th September 2017!
Or at the "Schmiedewerk"-booth at the "Werkstoffwoche 2017" in Dresden from 27.-29.09.2017.
