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)
A research group covering electrochemical energy, corrosion and surface science and electrolysis
This research group covers ferroic materials and phenomena, materials for energy technology, ceramics and coatings, nanomaterials and nanodevices, 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
