Over the last thirty five years the Composites Centre has provided a focus for all the composites expertise across six Departments in the College:
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
Our world-leading academics have a proven track record in innovating and undertaking research and industrial development in composites.
About the Centre
Our vision is to be the World leading resource for composite knowledge, research and training, ranging from conception of novel and new composites and architectures, to the design, testing and analysis of full-scale composite components in support of industry.
To create, utilise and disseminate knowledge in the field of composites to meet the needs of the industry and to contribute to the continued success and ambitions of our academics.
To provide potential collaborators and stakeholders with comprehensive visibility of, and access to, all the composite expertise and knowledge across Imperial College, and hence facilitate new and nurture existing collaborations.
To educate and train engineers and scientists in composites.
