Research in engineering materialsOur research leads to the synthesis of improved materials. We study the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties, environmental impact and degradation of material properties, and fatigue and durability of material under service like conditions.
Education in engineering materials
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 if you are interested.
