Thermo-Calc Software is honoured to receive the 2019 ASM Pacesetter Award for contributions to education in the fields of materials science and engineering. The award was accepted by Thermo-Calc Software Inc President, Paul Mason, at the ASM Leadership Luncheon at MS&T last week in Portland, OR. The ASM Pacesetter award was established in 2009 to honour organisations that support the ASM Materials Education Foundation in their mission of advancing scientific and engineering knowledge through support of education and research. The award is given annually and previous recipients include Chevron, NACE International Foundation and ONR – Office Naval Research. Thermo-Calc Software is proud to support the ASM Materials Education Foundation and honoured to join such a prestigious group of recipients.
Since 2015, following a successful pilot program that commenced in 2012, Thermo-Calc Software has supported the ASM Materials Genome Toolkit Program Award which is partially supported by the NIST-funded Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD) as part of the national Materials Genome Initiative (MGI). This award, established by the ASM Materials Education Foundation and under a special arrangement with Thermo-Calc Software AB, is a competition open to U.S. undergraduate engineering programs to compete to receive licenses for the latest versions of Thermo-Calc, add-on modules and databases. This program has been instigated to promote science-based computational materials design and engineering in undergraduate curriculum.Continue reading
