Technical Room – Materials Characterization Lab

lab activity

The Materials Characterization Lab is a space dedicated to research activities related to the mechanical characterization of materials, systems and components for engineering applications.
Research is done in collaboration with other research groups as well as industrial partners.
The Materials Characterization Lab provides a resource for those who require expert know-how of materials and design of mechanical systems and structures.
