A new series of articles in JOM (The Member Journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society) highlights the diversity success and challenges in the field of materials science and engineering. Our work on engineering outreach is one of the highlighted articles. You can find all of the open access articles here: Perspectives on Diversity […]
EDITED: 9/5/18 – This position has been filled. The Structural Materials in Extreme Environments in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign has one opening for a postdoctoral scholar. The primary research project will focus on chemical surface modification of structural alloys for improved environmental compatibility. The ideal candidate […]
We are excited to welcome the incoming MatSE graduate class! Students interested in the SMEE research team, particularly our work on carbonaceous build up on structural alloys or metallic thin films, are encouraged to contact Prof. Krogstad.
Congratulations to Nathan on successfully passing both his qualifying exams!
Megan Emigh successfully passed her preliminary exam today! Her dissertation proposal was entitled: “Influence of a nanotwinned, nanocrystalline microstructure on aging of a Ni-25Mo-8Cr superalloy.” You can find more details about this project here.
Our research on intrinsic toughening mechanisms in polycrystalline ceramics has recently been supported by CAREER award, through the NSF/DMR Ceramics Program.
Our new project sponsored by the DOE Early Career program on radiation tolerance in engineering ceramics has recently been highlighted in the Jan/Feb 2017 edition of the ACerS Ceramics Bulletin. Click here for the full story.
We are excited to announce a new support for the lab through the DOE Early Career program. This will support our efforts understanding radiation tolerance in ceramics. For more information: http://engineering.illinois.edu/news/article/16517
