From an academic perspective there are several potential reasons to blog. But, actually it depends on what you want. Blogs are no different from media channels like video, print, audio, presentations and so on that use tools to share information. They all deliver results – but of varying kind. The kind of results I expect from blogs is mainly about developing stronger relations, feedback and discussions with important target groups.
My hope is to do just that; provide discussion, insights and receive feedback from you the reader. You could be a student, parent, or someone who is in the industry. I welcome your input.
As we begin this adventure, my goal is to share as much information as possible around Materials and Processes in Advanced Materials and Manufacturing regarding upcoming conferences, best practices, and white papers. More importantly, I hope to extend the boundaries of outreach to our young people who are trying to figure out what they want to be when they grow up. I want to engage them into thinking now about careers in engineering, materials science, drafting, electronics, welding, aviation etc.
Help me with this outreach by providing useful information, facts, contacts and anything else you deem valuable. I look forward to our blog time!
