A Targeted Approach

ASMME is a research group who link fundamental material and process knowledge, with industry applications. Our goal is innovation through evolution of manufacturing, working with a wide range of sectors such as aerospace, medical device, energy and transport.

  • Material knowledge – Material testing, imaging and characterisation is the key driver in all projects

  • Innovation – Creative thinking and problem solving inform next generation product and manufacturing process development.

  • Team work – A team of dedicated members leading internationally recognised manufacturing and materials research

Located in the Alice Perry Engineering building at NUI Galway, our researchers have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art on-campus facilities. We also have access to a large network of collaborating institutes and research centers throughout Ireland and the world.
