The department of Materials Science and Engineering co-operates with the society and the rest of the world in many ways. In research projects industry organisations are often a part and in competence centres many industry partners and research parts gather around one topic.

Competence centres at the department

Center for Mechanics and Materials (MMD)

The Center brings together the two disciplines Mechanics and Materials Science in order to speed up the processes for producing better materials. The long-term goal is a renewed and strengthened education at the basic, advanced and research levels in the field.
