Short Course and Registration


The short courses have been given first at the E.U.G. within the Dept of Engineering at Cambridge University since 1992 and then post 2002 transferred to AC Metaxas and Associates.  The courses take various formats, for example in 2010 three course were given (a) a course targeting RF technology (b) a generic course incorporating both RF and microwave heating and (c) a bespoke course at an international company in the USA.  In 2012 a bespoke course was presented at a company in the middle east. In September 2014 a bespoke course on RF drying was given in a firm’s premises in the UK and in October 2014 the usual course on Microwave and RF heating was given to a number of industrialists.  Please contact us to discuss details.
