Materials Characterization and Processing Center

In the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, we hold our industry connections in very high regard. Not only do we educate and train future materials professionals, but we also develop and utilize leading technology that advances the boundaries of the profession. Our laboratories serve the undergraduate and graduate students, in addition to the faculty of Materials Science and Engineering and welcome opportunities to partner with Industry via various mechanisms.

As a department, we are able to offer the services of our Materials Characterization and Processing Center, which provides analytical and physical testing, manufacturing, fiber extrusion and processing support and services. These services are also available to others on campus on a departmental, college and university-wide level.

A core component of our mission is to provide public service testing on a fee basis for Industry. Our center is committed to thoughtful problem solving and analysis, a direct result of our in-depth technical experience and extensive knowledge gained, in part, via collaborations with faculty and industry partners. We are especially skilled at establishing non-routine, unique protocols to assist with a variety of needs including troubleshooting, defect analysis, proof of concept and pilot scale testing and analysis.
