Extrusion Design University 2019 - EDU '19

Abstract Submission

AEC is currently seeking presentations for EDU '19, scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2019, co-located with Aluminum USA in Nashville, TN. Presentations will be arranged in three subject-specific tracks covering the use of aluminum extrusions in Architecture/B&C, Automotive, and Industrial/General Design. 

Extrusion customers are eager to learn more about the extrusion process, technology and applications, so presentations are sought that help tell the extrusion story. The event will bring together industry experts (people like you!) who understand extrusion design and production processes, assisting participants in honing their aluminum extrusion knowledge and design skills.

Based on the experience AEC has obtained over the past few years presenting webinars for design and engineering professionals, and at the well-received EDU ’18 in Chicago, attendees will be eager to learn and earn possible continuing education learning units for the information they obtain at this conference.

You’ll be helping to advance the knowledge of these design professionals and create an atmosphere of learning and development. That, in turn, will expand the positive reputation of the aluminum extrusion industry, your company and the Council.

Who Will Attend?

The EDU program will benefit design and engineering professionals from virtually every end-user market for aluminum extrusions, including:

  • Product/Industrial Design
  • Electrical
  • Automotive/Transportation
  • Architecture
  • Medical/Healthcare Equipment
  • Marine
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Military/Government
