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.
Supervised doctorates are the highest degrees awarded by the University for research, which is carried out under the immediate supervision of staff members. The education and training provided are designed to produce graduates who have the capacity to conduct independent research that is both original and of high international quality.
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
