Advanced Materials and Composites Research

Mission Statement

North Dakota State University has assembled a large, multidisciplinary team of researchers of which the Composites Research Group is focused on the development, improvement, and implementation of advanced composites sourced from both synthetic and agricultural based materials to capitalize on their respective superior specific properties and sustainability and to provide continual advancements to the knowledge base upon which further innovations may be inspired.  

Current Projects

• Center for Sustainable Materials Science (CSMS)

NDSU chemists, polymer scientists, and materials engineers developing new renewable based monomers, polymers, and composites that are structural and recyclable
