Institute of Materials and Process Engineering (IMPE)
The IMPE possesses extensive competencies in materials sciences and process engineering, the fusion of which enables the development of innovative materials, manufacturing processes and systems.
The IMPE accompanies its project partners in close cooperation from the idea through development to implementation in production. The research team consists of engineers, materials scientists and chemists who contribute their extensive experience to the joint projects.
The IMPE is organized in seven laboratory groups that are well networked within the School of Engineering and the ZHAW and whose employees work closely together.
The activities of the approximately 50 employees in research and development are focused on the following core areas
The IMPE has full access to a state-of-the-art equipment for testing, analysis and characterization of materials, surfaces and coatings as well as to installations and equipment for process engineering and process technology.
Our expertise continually improve through our national and international collaborations.
