Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Technology (MEMTi)

Director: Adriano Nasciuti
Close collaboration with industry, realized in numerous projects and partnerships, is the strong point of the insitute, enabling the activation of a fruitful synergy between the resources available within the academic sector and those found in the industrial world. This has resulted in a continuous upgrading of required skills within the fields, leading the institution into areas of the development of didactic and research activities.

The research activities carried out at the Institute, primarly focused on the development of innovative products and processes, are characterized by the common denominator of the relevant use of computational sciences. The experimental activities of the laboratories are therefore combined with those of modelling and simulation, useing devices for the characterization of materials as well as dedicated software and high-performance computing tools for a multiscale and multi-disciplinary approach.
