The BMetA is based in the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham. Its aim is to disseminate information on material properties, processing and application in terms of current, future and historical developments. This is carried out primarily through a series of FREE to attend evening lectures. Special events may be planned from time to time. These will be announced both on this site, and by email to subscribers to our email newsletters.

We aim to have about eight lectures a year and these are normally held at the University on a Thursday evening, starting at 18:30 hrs, following a buffet which usually begins at 18:00 hrs. Lectures are normally about 45 minutes long followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience. The lectures usually attract an attendance of between twenty-five and seventy-five, depending on the topic.
The audience consists of a diverse range of people, again depending on the topic, but would normally include postgraduate PhD students, undergraduates, members of the University’s academic staff and interested people from industry.
We organise meetings that provide informative talks on diverse subjects relevant to materials and which contribute to continuing professional development for IOM3 members.
Anyone with a genuine interest in the field of metals, materials and engineering is warmly invited to attend.
At this time, all of our meetings are being held online. To see further details, please visit our website.
