Advanced Manufacturing

The research on advanced manufacturing is application-orientated. Our research comprises of (1) computer-controlled or micro-electronics- based equipment and intelligent systems, (2) cutting edge materials and emerging capabilities enabled by the physical and biological sciences, for example nanotechnology, chemistry, and biology, (3) efficient, productive, highly integrated, tightly controlled processes. Research topics such as investigating new production methods for advanced products, studying process parameters of new processes, understanding the interaction of processes in advanced manufacturing systems and so on are covered.
