Advanced Materials Processing Lab

Advanced Materials Processing Labstudents in advanced materials processing lab

This cutting edge facility provides a learning environment that allows our students the opportunity to work with material development in the areas of thin films, micro deposition, bulk forming, plastic deformation, powder synthesis, and thermal processing. This lab introduces a taste of the industrial world including the newer processing techniques such as: spin coating, inkjet printer deposition, rapid prototyping, spray drying, and electrophoretic deposition. This student experience spans multiple disciplines, allowing our students to work strategically with our materials faculty.

This lab is utilized to facilitate classroom experiences and give the opportunity for students at an early stage in their educational experience to participate in the processing techniques used in industry today. As the Department of Materials Science undergraduate class continues to raise the bar and to stay competitive in this exciting time in the materials world, this lab will continue to be a leading tool in the success of our undergraduate program.

Please note: During Steidle Building renovations, this lab has been temporarily relocated to 6 Hosler Building.
