The Armourers made armour and the Brasiers worked with copper and brass, so historically the Company has been associated with metal for centuries and the linkage is, therefore, armour, metals, metallurgy. The last is now regarded as a branch of the wider subject materials science which, in addition to metals and alloys, includes polymers such as plastics and rubbers, ceramics, composites and, increasingly, bio-materials and products of nano-technology. The Trust supports materials science education by links with schools, universities, professional institutions and industrial companies. This support is funded by three interlocking programmes: the Company's own Materials Science Scheme and three jointly funded schemes with Corus and Rolls-Royce who all share our commitment in this field of education. The aim is to instill an interest in science education generally, whilst encouraging students to specialise in materials science, and then to join British Industry to use their talents. Medals and cash awards for top materials science students are made at 19 universities and over 70 awards each year are made to undergraduates to gain industrial experience all over the world. Over 30 conference travel grants are given annually to postgraduate students. Scholarships and bursaries are given to some 45 students and grants are made for courses to update school physics teachers and to arouse the interest of chemistry and other science teachers in materials science.For students serious about a career in the advanced engineering sector, AEM Futures is the place to be.

Focused on large-scale, industrial application AFC Energy's technology is fully-scalable to provide clean electricity on-demand. The fuel cell has the potential to be the catalyst which transforms the way in which industries of today produce energy for tomorrow. The alkaline fuel cell was first demonstrated by Sir William Grove in 1839. Fuel cells have also been used to power the US manned space missions, but at that time the technology was too expensive to be commercially-viable. By contrast, AFC Energy's technology is low-cost, low-temperature and low-pressure.
