Composite Materials Applications Research Center

Center Introduction

Composite Materials Application Research Center aims to develop future-oriented cutting-edge composites that surpass the performance of pre-existing materials through synthesizing base components, designing optimum structure, and deeply understanding mechanism.
The main interest of this center is to achieve composite materials with high performance, multi-functionality, innovative processability, and versatility. Ultimately, our research ranges from the development of original technology to application research for potential fields such as future transportations, aerospaces, electronics, energy, and environments.
