Research

The ASEM laboratory houses research and education on advanced and sustainable engineering materials. It is a hub for renewable materials, polymers, advanced composites, nano-composites, smart multifunctional materials and other engineering materials research. The laboratory features brand-new facilities for: 

  • manufacturing

  • testing 

  • characterization 

  • non-destructive evaluation

  • computational modelling
