The Birmingham Metallurgical Association

The Birmingham Metallurgical Association is an affiliated society of the Institute of Materials.

Its aim is to disseminate information on materials processing and properties to industry and academia in the West Midlands region, primarily through a series of evening lectures. The Association is based in the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham.

We aim to have about eight lectures a year and these are normally held at the University on a Thursday evening, starting at 6.30 pm. The lectures are usually about forty-five minutes long and attract an audience of between twenty-five and seventy-five, depending on the topic.

The audience usually consists of a diverse range of people, again depending on the topic, but would normally include postgraduate PhD students, members of the University's academic staff and industrial materials scientists.
