Materials and Manufacturing

Welcome to the department of Materials and Manufacturing. We provide both education and research within the field of materials and manufacturing.

The department has 40 researchers, six of these being professors, some being associate professors and senior lecturers, and the others being Ph.D. students, and laboratory and development engineers.


The researchers at the department are course responsible and examiners for a great number of courses within materials and manufacturing, which are given at undergraduate and master’s level as well as in doctoral programmes.

The department is currently developing a net based master’s program within the area of foundry technology. The program is set to start autumn 2017.


The research within our department is multidisciplinary and may study everything from product development to materials development. Special focus is put on component characteristics and their relation to the manufacturing process.

The research has support in disciplines as flow dynamics, engineering mechanics, mechanics of materials, materials science and engineering, materials physics and chemistry, as well as simulation and optimisation.

Parts of our research concern the product development chain. This research mainly studies the interface between design and manufacturing/use, and focuses especially on component characteristics.

The aim of the department’s research activities is to carry out fundamental research to solve challenges related to materials in advanced cast components and to the manufacturing processes of these components, in close cooperation with national and international industries and research institutes.
