Welcome to 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.

Impressive results when steel meets Artificial Intelligence

It’s time for the steel industry to take yet another step into the future: HiMat Engineering is bringing artificial intelligence into the mix. This not only saves time and money, but is also better for the environment. Image: The team behind HiMat Engineering

New breakthrough on high entropy alloys

Congratulations to our colleagues Shuo Huang, Wei Li, Song Lu, Xiaoqing Li and Levente Vitos (MSE), He Huang and Dongyoo Kim (former postdocs at MSE), as well as to our collaborators Erik Holmström (Sandvik) and Se Kyun Kwon (Pohang University) for their breakthrough achievements in understanding the mechanical properties of high entropy alloys.
