    The Materials and Mechatronics laboratory

    The aim of the SYMME Materials and Mechatronics Laboratory (EA 4144) is to bring together interdisciplinary expertise in the field of systems and materials to conduct research for the improvement or design of mechatronic systems.

      This research concerns the following application areas:

      • Energy
      • Industrial production
      • Health
      • Very large instruments

      The laboratory groups an average of 90 persons including 45 research professors and 25 doctoral students.

      These researchers are divided into four groups of skills:

      • QPS: Quality of products and systems
      • CICS: Design Instrumentation and Control Systems
      • MS: Materials structures
      • MF: Functional Materials

      These groups work in a coordinated manner to conduct interdisciplinary projects in the areas of applications, and also conduct basic research in the following scientific fields:

      • Materials science
      • Mechanical engineering
      • Instrumentation
      • Automatic control
      • Industrial engineering

      Each researcher is committed to excellence in his disciplinary community of origin allowing to have an interdisciplinary research for applications at the highest level.

      Historically, the laboratory was created in 2006 by the merger of the Laboratory of Applied Mechanics and the laboratory of Instrumentation and Materials and a group from the Laboratory of Computer Information System, Information Processing and Knowledge.
