About the course

For the thirty-first year, ESI Group, in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL), is organizing a solidification course with the participation of renowned lecturers from Swiss, French, Austrian, Canadian, and US universities.

This one-week course held in English is designed for engineers and scientists from industry and research centers who wish to improve their knowledge in the field of solidification.

Scope and Program: Please click here for more information about the course.

Participants should have a degree in materials science, metallurgy, mechanical engineering, physics or chemistry. 

The course price, including 5 hotel nights in single room and all meals, is CHF 5450.

Secure Casting Quality & Delivery Commitments
Simulation allows for virtual testing early on in the development stage. Accurate prediction and quantification of defects and process design are imperative in order to ‘get it right’ during production trials.

Learn how digitalization is essential to ensure getting casting parts right the first time, meeting deadlines, and cutting costs on scrap parts or late redesigns. With its finite element technology, it also predicts complex issues like deformations and residual stresses and comprehensively addresses most castable alloys and most casting processes like sand castings, die castings, investment castings, and multiple variants associated with these processes.
