In addition to providing teaching for postgraduate courses, ETCbrunel run a number of short training courses in the use of surface and materials analysis for a diverse range of applications.
The Centre’s Scanning Electron Microscopy courses, endorsed by the Institute of Physics for continuing professional development (CPD), give delegates theoretical and practical knowledge of scanning electron microscopy (SEM); including imaging techniques, high resolution SEM, and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. Courses make use of both standard scanning electron microscopes and the ETCbrunel’s state-of-the-art variable-pressure, field-effect SEM. A combination of lectures, demonstrations and practicals explore the theory, practice and application of these powerful analytical tools.
These courses run in two days and are focussed on material science or biology.
Because of its emphasis on practical skills, the number of delegates will be limited to 12 per course so early booking is recommended.
