The Department of Materials Science and Technology offers a wide variety of research areas including inorganic materials and ceramics, metal production and recycling, the physical properties and usage of different metals and research on materials for energy technology such as solar cells.
Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI)
Metal Production is an interdisciplinary Centre for Innovation-based Research (SFI). During the next decades, the Norwegian metal industry will need to achieve even higher-quality output with more efficient use of resources and energy.
A research group covering electrochemical energy, corrosion and surface science and electrolysis
This research group covers oxides for energy technology, ferroic oxides, materials synthesis and ceramic processing, refractory materials and non-oxide ceramics
This research group focus on development and usage of different materials such as different light metals and steel. This includes research on solidification, welding and different joining techniques, thermo-mechanical processing and material modeling.
The recycling of metals is a modern field in metallurgy. The Resources, Energy & Environment group recycles all types of metals such as iron, silicon, aluminum and rare earth elements
