MIT Materials Processing Center (MPC)
The goals of the Materials Processing Center are to unite the materials research community at MIT and to enhance Institute-industry interactions by connecting industry to faculty research.
The mission of the Materials Processing Center is to provide an environment where students and professionals from industry, government, and academia collaborate to identify and address pivotal multidisciplinary issues in materials processing and manufacturing in a way that creates new knowledge, produces knowledgeable people, and promotes the exchange of knowledge in the service of our nation in the context of a global community.
The MPC's philosophy focuses on an understanding of processing fundamentals to control internal structure, from the nanoscale to the macroscale, thereby optimizing a material's properties and performance. Center research covers a broad range of materials and processes via a number of common themes. Foremost among these is the control of materials structure, properties, and performance in an ecologically and economically sound manner.
