New at JEC World: the Education Hub

The Education Hub targets the younger composite generation and anyone who wants to discover new professional opportunities in the industry. It includes a Job Center, JEC World’s Schools and Universities partners and explore the new Students Program developed especially for the trade show. It also showcases the technical posters of the Composites Challenge program.

Students Program

Demand for young, well-trained and committed engineers is high among composite-material manufacturers. To meet this demand, JEC World is teaming up with MAI Carbon and Institut de Soudure to offer a brand-new Students Program that keeps abreast of needs in the composite industry.

The Students Program targets students who want to supplement their course studies by learning more about fiber-reinforced composites. The two-part program includes workshops with a focus on theoretical foundations and a guided tour through the JEC World trade show.

The main purpose of the workshops will be to give the Students an overview of the field of composites.

THE TWO WORKSHOPS WILL BE PRESENTED:
