Research at the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering
The Department of Materials Science and Technology offers a wide variety of research areas including inorganic materials and ceramics, metal production and recycling and materials for energy technology such as research on renewable energy sources, for example 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 group includes the NanoSPD group led by Hans Roven and the Solidification and Casting group led by Lars Arnberg.
The recycling of metals is a modern field in metallurgy. The Metal Production and Recycling group recycles all types of metals such as iron, silicon, aluminum and rare earth elements
