At Swansea University we are fortunate enough to have access to high-spec equipment which enables us to undertake various tests, experiments and imagery. Our facilities include:

  • World-leading equipment for characterisation of the mechanical properties of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials 
  • Extensive range of laboratories housing scanning electron microscopes with full microanalysis and electron backscatter diffraction capabilities
  • New facilities at both SMaRT and SPECIFIC that house state-of-the-art equipment for characterising aerospace materials and creating functional coated materials for steel and glass respectively
