Materials Science and Engineering
At Materials Science and Engineering research is conducted on metallic and ceramic materials covering the whole chain Processes – Structures – Properties. The activities include experimental work as well as modeling on different length scales.
Research units and competence centers
The department consists of three units that conduct their own research and education. We have three competence centers working closely with the industry and providing research-related infrastructure.
