Materials Science Lab

Materials Science Lab: This research facility is focused on studies of material aging, wear, and failure analysis. Such research is vital to the development of longer-lasting materials and more reliable and durable remanufactured parts. For example, improved materials can be studied and evaluated for greater strength and reduced weight to improve fuel economy. Much of the research here is done in concert with various industries, giving GIS students real-world, practical experience, while at the same time helping businesses produce better products and improving the economy.
