Steeluniversity.org wins EASA award

World Steel Association : 22 October, 2004  (Company News)
Steeluniversity.org has been selected as one the winners of the 2004 European Academic Software Awards (EASA). steeluniversity.org is a highly interactive e-learning resource on steel processing, products and applications, supported by the underlying metallurgical, scientific and engineering principles.
Steeluniversity.org has been selected as one the winners of the 2004 European Academic Software Awards (EASA). steeluniversity.org is a highly interactive e-learning resource on steel processing, products and applications, supported by the underlying metallurgical, scientific and engineering principles.

Steeluniversity.org has been created by the International Iron and Steel Institute (IISI) and is aimed at undergraduate students, their teachers and employees in the steel industry supply chain.

EASA is a biennial competition for academic software and the use of education technology, arranged by the European Knowledge Media Association. It is intended to stimulate the understanding, development and use of knowledge media within higher education across Europe.

Almost 160 entries were received for the 2004 EASA award. 30 projects were selected to attend the finals held in Le Locle and Neuchâtel, Switzerland from 25 to 27 September 2004. The jurors selected the ten best entries and the results were announced at an award ceremony at the University of Neuchâtel. The jury commended steeluniversity.org for '...its innovative and excellent graphical simulations, its use of open-ended problems and its integrated educational approach.'

Dr David Naylor, Project Director of steeluniversity.org said 'IISI is delighted and honoured that steeluniversity.org was selected for this prestigious award, especially when considering the very high quality of the other 29 software projects. The EASA 2004 award is a significant recognition of the support that the global steel industry and its partners have committed to this ground-breaking project.' Dr Naylor went on to thank the storyboard writers from around the world and the MATTER team at the University of Liverpool who are responsible for coding the storyboards.

Steeluniversity.org already contains modules on steel applications, steel processing and ferrous metallurgy. New modules on steel in construction, continuous casting, electric arc steelmaking, steel properties and strengthening mechanisms, engineering steels, sustainability, and steel and the environment (including life cycle assessment) are currently under development.
