In addition to the programming, expo and networking opportunities, a Tire Mechanics Short Course will be held in conjunction with ITEC. The five-day educational and developmental course provides engineers and scientists with an in-depth, intense study of developments surrounding tire engineering. The course, overseen by the University of Akron, is designed for practicing engineers, chemists and scientists concerned with tires and vehicles, and those who have an engineering or science background at the bachelor of science level.
