Media release

A new partnership between Swinburne University of Technology and the American Welding Society (AWS) on behalf of the International Thermal Spray Association (ITSA) will strengthen the international outreach of both organisations across the Pacific.

This partnership aims to further surface engineering science and technology within a global context.

SEAM Director, Distinguished Professor Chris Berndt said “This partnership between AWS and SEAM is a great outcome. We will both have significant benefits by training early career researchers who will share their excitement and enthusiasm in surface engineering.”

The collaboration between SEAM and AWS/ITSA will ensure a pathway for the promotion and advancement of fundamental knowledge and understanding of surface engineering.

The International Thermal Spray Association (ITSA), a standing committee of the American Welding Society, is a professional industrial organization dedicated to expanding the use of thermal spray technologies for the benefit of industry and society.

SEAM Benefits include establishing a global network with industry and academics through AWS/ITSA; finding technical solutions for industrial issues; and providing early career researchers with future opportunities within a professional environment.
