WHY TAKE A Computational Mechanics Associates SHORT COURSE?
FIRST: You get a thorough grounding in the technology covered by the course. Introductory courses are designed to provide those new to the field with sufficient background to understand problems that may arise and to be able to talk intelligently to specialists in the field.
SECOND: The courses are taught by outstanding, experienced scientists who are active contributors of the field and, often, authors of definitive texts. You get to spend time with TOP people in the field. Ask questions, consult with them on your specific problems. The only way you can fail to benefit from the course is by sitting in a corner and never opening your mouth!
THIRD: You meet other people working in the field. In fact, some may have a solution to problems you are working on. Exchange views, ask questions, make valuable contacts you can talk with after the course.
FOURTH: You will be exposed to the essential literature in the field and take home with you an extensive set of notes as well as the basic text(s) in the field.
FIFTH: In many courses you will have HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE by solving problems in the accompanying workbook. Learn first-hand the advantages and limitations of analytical and numerical methods.
Please note: Each course has a cutoff date for registration. Please let us know on or before that date if you plan to attend a course. At the cutoff date, which is usually 4 - 5 weeks before the start of a course, we must make major financial commitments to instructors, publishers, meeting facilities and others. This typically involves a commitment of about $25,000 on our part. IF WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH REGISTRATIONS AT THE CUTOFF DATE TO REACH THE BREAKEVEN LEVEL, THE COURSE IS CANCELLED. We can work with you if you need additional time to process permissions or payments, but we must know by the cutoff date that you are interested in attending. If you wait until almost the start of the course to register, you might be disappointed to find that a course which had the potential to go was cancelled because not enough people called on time.
- Payment must be made at the time of registration
- All paid registrants will be confirmed
- DO NOT TRAVEL WITHOUT WRITTEN CONFIRMATION
