Welcome to WTM

Welcome to the Chair of Materials Science and Engineering for Metals (WTM) of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuernberg

Material development is closely linked to process engineering (casting, sintering, 3D printing, forming, joining …). More efficient materials make new demands on primary shaping and forming technologies, better-to-process materials master manufacturing challenges, innovative production technologies create great potential for further materials development.
The research at the Institute WTM is focused on new process technologies and the relations between process, microstructure and properties of metal-based materials.
