Engineering Materials (KMAT)

Students, professors and researchers at the Division of Engineering Materials explore the relationships between microstructure and properties of mainly metallic materials but also ceramics, composites and polymers for engineering applications.


News and Reportage


We are giving courses in materials science and engineering at both basic and advanced levels to around 400 engineering students each year. Since materials science is a practical subject we combine theoretical studies with hands-on exercises within our laboratory.

Our undergraduate courses are taken by students on engineering programmes:

  • Mechanical Engineering,
  • Design and Product Development Engineering,
  • Energy, Environment and Management,
  • Industrial Engineering and Management,
  • Master programme in Mechanical engineering.

It is also possible to make a thesis project within the subject Engineering Materials; either in a company or within our laboratory. Please contact Johan Moverare or Mikael Segersäll if you are interested.
