The Manitoba Institute for Materials encompasses a number of multidisciplinary research themes with professors from a number of different departments on campus.  Our research areas range from electronic materials to spin glasses, from nanostructures to polymers and soft biomaterials, from complex structured metamaterials to superalloys, from composite material systems and intelligent sensing to high performance computing materials research, from magnetic materials to photonic and phononic microsystems, and from MEMS and NEMS to minerals as well as to research related to the environment. These focus areas are dynamic and are evolving with the rapidly moving fields of materials science and engineering.
