    Advanced Materials

    The department has long been recognized, nationally and internationally, for expertise of its faculty in particle technology, fluidization, and transport and interfacial phenomena. Research activities in these areas occur through a number of research centers: Center of Excellence in Polymer Science and Engineering (CEPSE), Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering (CESE) and Particle Technology and Crystallization Center (PTCC). In recent years, faculty have embarked on research in emerging areas, such as nanomaterials, complex fluids, nanofluids, molecular modeling, novel catalysts and membranes for fuel cells and batteries.

    Examples of the research interests of individual faculty in advanced materials are:
