Are you interested in joining a strong international community? Do you have fruitful ideas to share?
Connect with IIW Young Professionals worldwide by joining below.
The IIW has identified the critical necessity for more young people to pursue careers at all levels in welding and its allied technologies, i.e. from the welder to the scientist. The IIW also has the ongoing need to attract the younger generation of welding professionals. The members of this group are investigating the formation of IIW Student Chapters by working with students at those universities interested around the world.Join IIW
Competent and dynamic young people are essential to the IIW’s future. Whether you are a student or new to your industry, IIW welcomes your innovations and contributions to build our technical and scientific knowledge base.Join IIW
IIW is an excellent resource. During my first five years working in the manufacturing industry as a young professional, IIW has been the place where I have learned the most about current research in welding. And attending the Annual Assemblies for the past 4 years has helped me to become the weld fatigue expert within my company! Additionally, it has provided valuable connections with seasoned and young professionals. I highly recommend IIW to my fellow students and professionals!
My first experience was in 2017 at the IIW AA in Shanghai, during which I attended Working Units (WUs), Study Group Standardization and collaborative forums. It was a great moment of mutual exchange that gave us the idea to develop YP events in Cameroon. We have organized the 1st International Forum of Welding Trades in Cameroon, now with the IIW YP we plan the FIMS to become an annual conference. As a result, we are involved in a welding and piping training and certification project targeting 2,500 young people from vocational schools in Cameroon.

PhD Studentship in Production Technology – Specializing in metallurgy and characterization of steels deposited by Additive Manufacturing
Since 2008, University West has a specific research environment in Production Technologies, called Production Technology West (PTW), which includes research portfolios in Industrial Automation, Machining, Thermal Spraying, Additive Manufacturing and Welding. At the PTW environment, the Division of Welding Technology will host the PhD student. In this division, the research is conducted by a multi-disciplinary team including researchers in modelling and simulation of heat sources, researchers in process control and researchers in metallurgy and mechanical characterization.
With 55 Member Countries, the National Delegations of which are
comprised of a harmonious combination of representatives from research,
academia and industry, the IIW is in a unique position to influence and
attract cooperation on a global and multi-tiered scale. Those who
regularly participate in IIW activities truly BELIEVE in the IIW, what
the IIW represents, and what the IIW offers.
Whether they are individual consultants, members of R&D staff of corporate entities, or professors/researchers/students of universities or research institutions, they all come back again and again to share in the IIW’s knowledge exchange network.
IIW is aware that you are the future of materials joining industry and technologies and that is why the BoD has a special Task Group for YPs. Also all the Technical Working Units focus on involving YPs in IIW activities.
