Other activities include Conferences, Workshops and Exhibitions on recent developments in Materials Processing. Material Application Engineering, Heat Treatment, Equipment etc. at National and International levels.
In order to increase awareness on materials technology and to excite young student community in materials science and engineering careers, ASM has been conducting one-week Materials Camps at I.I.T. Bombay, Mumbai , M.S.University of Baroda, Vadodara, ITM Universe, Vadodara & MNIT Jaipur for the students of 11thstandard to expose students to materials technology through hands-on experimental work and Industry visits.
Participation in these camps is free; breakfast, Iunch, course materials etc. is given free to all the participating students. These camps are found to be highly effective as quite a few students have opted Materials Technology as one of the options while entering engineering stream.
