Metal Forming and Mechanical Behaviour

Metal forming is the process of shaping metal parts by applying force. The mechanical behaviour of metals during the forming process is a critical factor in the final quality and performance of the parts.

Materials Joining

Metal joining is attaching two or more metal parts together to form a single, integrated structure. There is a wide range of metal joining techniques, each with its own advantages and disadvantages depending on the application.

Iron and Steel Technology

Iron and steel technology is the field of study that focuses on the production, properties, and applications of iron and steel. It involves the selection of raw materials, metallurgy, manufacturing processes, and product development to produce high-quality iron and steel products.

Nano and Bulk Materials Processing

Nano and bulk materials processing are two different approaches to manipulating and shaping materials at different scales.

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is an interdisciplinary field of study that combines the principles of materials science, engineering, and computational methods to design and develop new materials and devices. ICME uses advanced computational tools and simulations to predict the properties of materials and how they will perform in different applications.

Ceramics, Functional & Biomedical Materials

Ceramics, functional materials, and biomedical engineering are all interdisciplinary fields of study that involve the application of various engineering principles to the design and development of materials and devices used in various industries and applications.

Materials Characterisation

Materials characterization is the process of determining the physical and chemical properties of a material. It is an important step in understanding the behaviour of a material and how it will perform in different applications.

Surface Engineering

Surface engineering is the field of study that deals with the modification and manipulation of the surface properties of materials. The main goal of surface engineering is to improve the performance, durability, and functionality of materials by controlling their surface characteristics.
