Short Course on Precision Coating and Drying (Online)
May 25 - 27, 2021
This course provides coating engineers, scientists and researchers with an understanding of the principles of premetered coating processes and solidification phenomena that are central to developing high performance, precision coatings used in a variety of industries. This online course includes selected content from the longer Coating Process Fundamentals Short Course, which is held annually on the campus of the University of Minnesota. The course draws on decades of research in the Coating Process Fundamentals Program.
The course will be integrated with the University of Minnesota’s Canvas learning management system and offered over Zoom. The course will be offered in 3-hour blocks over three mornings, as detailed in the schedule. The Canvas site will provide participants the ability to link to synchronous lectures on Zoom as well as download course notes and view recordings of the lectures during the course and for a limited time after the course is over. The course will include question and answer sessions as well as opportunities to connect with the instructors for one-on-one or small group discussions.
The course director is Prof. Lorraine Francis
