Students Matter

We actively encourage post graduate students and young engineers in industry to develop their careers in advanced materials and their processing, particularly advanced composites.

The UK and Ireland Chapter runs two programmes specifically for students/young people:

Annual Student Seminar

This annual seminar competition is an excellent opportunity for postgraduate research students to present their work to a panel of independent judges. Typically, 2nd year PhD, 3rd year EngD, or Masters research students participate. More details on this link.

Every year the Student Seminar is held in late spring, normally in London - more information on this link.

Travel Grants

We offer travel grants to young SAMPE members working with advanced composites in the UK or Ireland to broaden their experience and raise their profile. More details on this link.
