TMS Leaders Discuss Materials Education in the U.K.; Oral History Project on Mining and Materials

JOM TMS Leaders Discuss Materials Education in the U.K.; Oral History Project on Mining and Materials 0 TMS's involvement in the Material Advantage program that offers a single low-cost student membership to four professional societies-TMS, ASM International, The American Ceramic Society, and the Association for Iron & Steel Technology.

Howard, 2016 TMS President, gave an overview of student engagement initiatives offered by TMS at the 8th International Materials Education Symposium. Stanley M. Howard and Michael F. Ashby, Emeritus Professor of Materials, Cambridge University, continue conversations started in the Materials Education Symposium sessions over dinner. Ashby is chair of the symposia series’s academic advising committee. These included the Materials Bowl, a question-and-answer competition on science and engineering topics held at every TMS annual meeting; the student run symposium supported by the TMS Education Committee; and the popular Bladesmithing Competition that challenges student teams to produce a knife or sword blade by hand hammering or trip hammer forging. He concluded his presentation with a brief overview of the TMS Young Leaders program and the resources it offers to smooth the transition from school to the professional world. “Our younger members are infusing our community with new ideas, abilities, and interests,” Howard said. “It is critical, both to the future of TMS and the profession that we serve, that we nurture this trend by helping students appreciate the value of professional engagement to their careers after they graduate.” Robinson also participated in the symposium program by presenting a poster on the outcomes of Comic-taniumTM, TMS’s recent outreach effort that uses the mythologies of comic characters to attract young people to STEM (science, engineering, mathematics and technology) careers. Other symposium speakers gave presentations on open on-line teaching techniques, project-based learning, and effective deployment of new information and learning technologies. A report of the symposium can be downloaded at http :// Prior to participating in the Materials Education Symposium, Howard and Robinson visited TMS members at the Department of Materials’ outreach efforts to both high school educators and students. The program offers a suite of professional development courses for teachers that provide guidance and resources on using (Left to right) Chris Grovenor, professor, Department of Materials, Oxford University, led Stanley Howard and James Robinson on a tour of Oxford’s Begbroke Science Park. George Smith, Emeritus Professor of Materials at Oxford, hosted Howard and Robinson on the daylong visit to the university that included a briefing on its student outreach initiatives. concepts of materials science as a means of satisfying curriculum requirements. Studentfocused activities range from classroom visits, to open days at the materials science laboratories and facilities at Oxford, to more in-depth residential programs. George Smith, Emeritus Professor of Materials, Oxford, shared the history of the program, having led the development of it when he was department chair in the year 2000. He noted that a critical factor in the program’s success was actively listening to the needs and concerns of teachers in managing their requirements. “They requested that we not ask them to do anything new, but instead help them do what was expected of them,” he said.

The model was created as a guideline for the development of professionals in the engineering workforce. The American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), of which TMS is a member society, is a member of AAES. Jeffrey W. Fergus, Director, Professional Development on the TMS Board of Directors and professor and associate dean at Auburn University, was one of ten subject matter experts who worked collaboratively to identify and review competencies that would contribute to success in engineering careers. “The model has a tiered structure that begins with competencies common among many disciplines and builds to competencies specific to engineering,” said Fergus. “Grouping of competencies that are common among different disciplines is useful to identify opportunities for career transitions and to guide training and education.” An interactive version of the model is available online at Oral Histories Explore Mining and Materials Industry sharing insights about the evolution of the mining and materials industry over the past 40 years as participants in the Global Mining and Materials Research Project. The initiative entailed recording and posting interviews with eleven experts and leaders in an oral history resource center housed by the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley. The interviews are now available for free download and viewing at http://www.lib /oral-history-center/global-mining. TMS interviewees include: Diran Apelian, 2008 TMS President, Alcoa-Howmet Professor of Engineering, and Founding Director of the Metal Processing Institute, Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
