Engineering Ceramics Division
The purpose of the Engineering Ceramics Division of The American Ceramic Society is to stimulate interest in the development and utilization of technology that falls within the broad category termed engineering ceramics. Members accomplish this by means of meetings for the presentation and discussion of professional papers, publication of professional literature, and promotion of scientific and industrial research.

|ECD Invites Secretary Nominations
We are honored to serve on the Engineering Ceramics Division Nominating Committee for 2013-14. One of the most important responsibilities of the ECD Nominating Committee is to bring forward the incoming division secretary candidate for 2014-15. This nomination will be presented for approval at the ECD Annual Business meeting during MS&T’14 meeting in Pittsburgh, PA (October 12-16, 2014) and will go on the ACerS annual election ballot in spring 2015.
As you all are aware, ECD is a very vibrant and energetic division in the society with a lot of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers. This division organizes one of the most widely recognized international meetings in the world in the area of advanced structural and functional ceramics, composites, and other emerging ceramic materials and technologies. This division also organizes and sponsors major symposia and plays a key role in the annual meeting of the society. We are very fortunate to have many highly motivated and committed volunteers from all over the world because they are the key elements of the bright future of this division (and society).
