The Cambridge Tribology Course: Friction, Wear and Lubrication
Approved 0 Hours 1 Attending
This highly successful course, now in its 27th and final year, provides an insight into the principles which underlie this important topic. The course is run by the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering, a worldwide centre of excellence in the field. Tribology - the science and technology of friction, wear and lubrication - makes a vital contribution to almost every area of industrial activity and yet is often under-represented in the education of scientists and engineers.

Course outline

The course consists of an intensive three-day programme delivered by leading experts. It offers an excellent opportunity to gain an overview of the field of tribology. Lectures, combined with informal discussion periods and a workshop session, will cover the key elements of the subject and will be complemented by case studies drawn from current industrial practice.
