Learn more about the course

Back in 2015 Professor Susan Krumdieck was awarded a fellowship to work in Grenoble INP for a semester. She worked with colleagues at SiMAP on CVD materials, but also got to teach a course on anything she wanted. What an opportunity. 

The first Transition Engineering class was a success as you can see from the photo of the students. One of the students went on to do a PhD and become a member of GATE. Professor Raphael Boichot created a course on Transition Engineering. And Professor Krumdieck used the experience to start putting together the text reference book and course plans for future in-person and on-line courses. 

In 2021 Professor Boichot delivered a course, Genie de la Transition! The feedback from students and colleagues has been very positive. If you are in the Alps region of France - do look into taking the course, and contacting Professor Boichot about possible continuing education training.
