Seminar: Understanding Material Physics and it's Relation to the Microstructure

September 18th 3pm (Dr.T. Kremmer and 4pm (Prof.S.Pogatscher) in the MIAMI seminar room, Cockcroft Building.


All welcome to attend.


Material research and engineering activity at the University of Huddersfield is spread over all seven schools and more than 12 research institutes and groups. The University has invested more than £5M in the development of the materials related areas and will continue with at least this level of investment over the next five years. More than 150 university members are involved in the materials activity.  

Materials activity can be schematically envisaged as a diagram below:
