The scope of the proposed summer school is to establish a communication, knowledge-base and computational-laboratory grid that will:

    • Advance research in production-characterization-testing and modeling of advanced composites and multifunctional materials.
    • Provide students and faculty from the participating countries with global research and international leadership experience.
    • Contribute to the transformation and advancement of education on materials science and engineering to all participants.

AMS Summer School series is the continuation of equivalent summer schools that were organized by “The International Institute for Multifunctional Materials for Energy Conversion” (IIMEC), an NSF-funded International Material Institute, established at Texas A&M University, in partnership with Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Houston and international research collaborators at Universities in North Africa, the Middle East, and Mediterranean countries.

Each year around 25 graduate students are participating and collaborating with each other.
