Division of Materials Science and Engineering

The Division of Materials Science and Materials Engineering (MuW) is one of three divisions of the "Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering" at RWTH Aachen University. Materials research and materials development have a long and very successful tradition at the university.

Our division was already founded in 1940. To this day, a research-strong group has developed which operates at an internationally recognised high level. A total of nine institutes deal with the development, production, processing and recycling of metallic and mineral materials.
