Advanced Materials and Manufacturing

UW Mechanical Engineering is helping to advance materials and manufacturing and strengthen the innovation ecosystem in the State of Washington and the nation. Washington is at the forefront of advanced manufacturing — using technology to improve products, services and processes. It has a growing health technology and medical device industry, as well as the most robust aerospace cluster in the world. Next-generation materials and systems will be knowledge-intensive and will require innovations that leverage emerging information and sensing technologies. The new processes and solutions being developed in our labs are helping to create a stronger, more sustainable, globally competitive manufacturing sector.
