Advanced Materials Engineering

Advanced Materials Engineering (AME) focus is on structuring advanced polymeric and biomedical materials via processing, with associated modelling, for:

  • high added-value products and methodologies and therapies aimed primarily at health and wellbeing
  • resource efficient materials, enhancing the value of feedstocks

Located in the world-class 4000 square foot Polymer Interdisciplinary Research Centre at Bradford, AME builds on decades of Polymer IRC research and knowledge transfer strengths whilst utilising its leading edge facilities. It is lead by Professor Phil Coates, FREng who is also the Director of the UK Polymer IRC UK network.
