ECD Introduces Global Engagement in Ceramic Science and Technology (GECST) Program  

ECD is pleased to introduce the Global Engagement in Ceramic Science and Technology (GECST) Program.  The main objectives of this program are to encourage, develop, and promote students and young professionals in the field of ceramic science and technology through their active involvement and participation in the Engineering Ceramics Division (ECD) of The American Ceramic Society (ACerS). This program will also develop and foster cooperation among young professionals from different parts of the world.

 

The ECD-GECST Program will provide Global Graduate Researchers Network (GGRN) Membership support to groups of students at certain locations for up to four years maximum for each student (depending on their level of graduate study and anticipated graduation date). These memberships will enable graduate students to become members of ECD and ACerS. 

 

Please review the GECST program document for details. A GECST application form is required for consideration for this program.  Contact Manabu Fukushima if you have questions.
