The section "Materials Science and Materials Engineering" is one out of three sections belonging to the "Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering" of RWTH Aachen University. Materials research as well as the development are looking back on a long and successful tradition at our university.
Our section was already founded in 1940. Up to the present day we have been able to develop a network which is internationally recognized for its high-quality research. The nine institutes forming the network of Materials Science and Materials Engineering are dedicated to the development, construction, processing and the recycling of metallic and mineral materials.
Through the grouping of competencies our section has been able to stand out as a central entity and a professional contact for all questions related to the research and development of functional materials as well as the corresponding process technology.
Materials Sciences is one of the central innovative key research areas of RWTH Aachen University.
