Slim Foundation and Telmex-Telcel offer free materials engineering course


The science and engineering of materials is a discipline that constantly surrounds us, yet we often overlook its significance.

The materials that surround us are vital to our daily lives, from the electronic devices we use to the life-saving medical materials. However, we seldom ponder the science behind these materials.

This understanding is fundamental to the development of more efficient, safer, and sustainable materials in a variety of applications, ranging from aircraft manufacturing to medical devices.
