The Department of Materials Science and Engineering undertakes innovative research dedicated to developing, producing, characterising and manipulating materials. Our goal is to enhance fundamental understanding, forming the basis for better performance, a longer life cycle and preserved functionality, while at the same time improving the sustainable use of resources. Critical Materials is an important connecting thread between our research areas.
Current vacancies at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering
PhD Position Awareness and tool creation in ancient humans and future robots
PhD Position (Self)-Aware Robots for tool creation
The METATOOL project is a groundbreaking international and multidisciplinary project that aims at developing a novel computational model of cognition based on predictive processing (metacognition) and validating its utility in real robots in the context of conditional sequential tasks (tool use) and tool creation.
