Introduction to Composites

The composites industry is a thrilling section of engineering and is used from the cutting edge satellites through to every day items. The pace it is increasing and developing at shows no signs of slowing.

Our Introduction to Composites course is ideal for anyone who is new to composites. This course is suitable regardless if you are already in an engineering or just working within a company the uses composites

Our Introduction to Composites course is designed so that no previous knowledge is needed. We will open the door and show you the vast possibilities that are possible with composites.

The course doesn’t focus on any one sector but instead uses examples from the entire industry. In doing this, we make sure great ideas can pass from sector to sector. 

It also isn’t just for engineers. This course is equally suited for those non-technically minded as well as those that are. It is a great way to get exposure to what else might be going on in your facility.

This will cover the basics of composites including:

  • What is a composite
  • Where are composites used
  • What matrices are used
  • What reinforcements are used
  • What manufacturing techniques are used
  • Your choice of one of the practical exercises

We don’t believe in just sitting by and staring at slides. We bring relatable examples to the classroom and workshop for you to get hands on with.

For the practical, you can choose one of the following techniques:

  • Wet Layup
  • Resin Infusion
  • Prepreg Hand Layup

Each of these will be an embossed carbon/epoxy or glass/epoxy coaster. This will be cured and sent out to you to keep after the course.

We can deliver this at your facility for £230 per person up to 10 people per group*. We can also deliver this at a local venue near you for a small additional price.

The course is one day (0900 – 1630) with approximately half a day in the classroom and half a day in the workshop

*minimum of 4 people required

From this course you can go to such a wide range of places. Here are some of the things you can think of:

If you’re getting into design, learn about it on our Design Fundamentals course. Add to it a better understanding of the manufacturing techniques in more depth on our Manufacturing Techniques course
