The Institute for Materials Science and Technology is part of the Faculty for Mechanical and Industrial Engineering of TU Wien. It evolved from the Institute of Materials Science and Materials Testing in 2004, which, in turn, emerged from the Institute of Mechanical Technology I and Construction Materials in 1980. Roughly 110 persons are currently working on materials-related research topics. The activities include polymers and metallic alloys as well as functional coatings or additively manufactured components for structural or biological application. Our research is based on state-of-the-art experimental characterization, which is combined with modeling and simulation from atomic scale up to engineering dimension. The Institute is engaged in the materials science and technology related teaching of students from Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Industrial Engineering.
