Goals & Objectives
CAMRE will meet the increasingly stringent requirements of cutting-edge materials technology by fundamental research, education, innovation and improved methodologies in the following thrust areas:
- Fabrication: Processing and synthesis of advanced materials and structures.
- Characterization: Developing both field characterization techniques and in-situ monitoring for the
microstructural and the effective behavior of advanced materials and structures.
- Durability: Predicting long-term performance (over lifetimes up to several decades) of materials
and structures as well as understanding environmental exposure affects.
- Failure: Understanding the failure modes of materials and structures, and how the microstructure
and morphology of these materials affect the failure modes.
- Education: Providing research opportunities for KSU undergraduates during the academic year
and providing opportunities for summer research experiences.
- Outreach: Motivating, informing, and stimulating interest through participation in seminars,
workshops, symposia and conferences.
- Presentation: Developing the oral and poster presentation skills of KSU undergraduates by dissemination of research results at professional meetings and conferences, and enhancing their verbal skills through technical report writing.
