Innovations in Materials, Processes and Manufacturing are vital to shaping our world to thrive. In collaborative efforts, we contribute science, technology and educate people.
We are a multidisciplinary community of 78 ETH Zurich research groups active in materials, process engineering and manufacturing technologies, thereby covering aspects from fundamental to applied sciences. MaP promotes trans-disciplinary collaboration in research and education. Beyond, it fosters the exchange with industry, for instance, through the ETH Sabbatical initiative offering customised continuing education for professionals pursuing a technical expert track career.
