College of Engineering Selected to Join Key Materials Research Center

The role of UT’s College of Engineering in studying advanced materials recently got a major boost with the National Science Foundation backing UT to join the Manufacturing and Materials Joining Innovation Center, or Ma2JIC.

Established at The Ohio State University, Ma2JIC’s mission was developed with input from industries, national laboratories, and academia, and has been focused on closing the gap in materials development, specifically on joining materials.

The work aims to develop new ways to assess, maintain, and improve welds and other areas where materials join, thereby extending their life and reducing their costs—particularly for use in the ever-changing energy sector.
