Advanced Manufacturing and System Integration

Intrinsically multi-disciplinary, this domain deals with the science and technology of manufacturing parts and systems. Whether it is to remove, add or transform material, it investigates how various energy and materials intakes can be combined to achieve new shapes, new material properties or new embedded functions in complex parts or systems. It builds up on fundamental knowledge in materials science, photonics, control and system engineering.

This domain is one of the main topics of partnership with CSEM and supports the Micromanufacturing Science & Engineering Center (M2C). In term of industrial relevance, the topic is currently supported by two sponsored-chairs (Richemont and PX Chairs). Worldwide, there is a global research effort on this topic that has been identified as one of essential domain pertinent to global challenges in modern society, such as sustainable development, both from an environmental (climate crisis) and societal point of view (reindustrializing western economies).
