Metallurgy & Welding

Metallurgy and welding are foundational to many manufacturing and process industries, and the research in the department focuses on the fundamental science associated with understanding the links between the processing, structure, properties and performance of metals. Our research focuses on rapid solidification, metal-matrix composites, the physics and mathematics of welding and materials processing, and welding metallurgy. Additive manufacturing using metals is also an important research thrust in this area.
