Research Focus and Anticipated Benefits

The mission of the Center for Computational Materials Design (CCMD) is to educate the next generation of scientists and engineers in the emerging field of materials design.  Member organizations benefit directly from the results of research projects and from the long reaching value derived from mentoring students as prospective employees.  Within the CCMD, the complimentary expertise of Pennsylvania State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology is brought together.

Penn State University research will focus on computational thermodynamics and kinetics, process-structure relations (phase fields), and databases. Georgia Tech research will focus on computational structure-property relations, microstructure representation and characterization, and systems-based, distributed, collaborative robust materials design.

 

Education and Outreach

Through its long-term partnerships among industry, academia and government laboratories, CCMD aims to educate a new generation of scientists and engineers with a broad, industrially oriented perspective on engineering research and practice.  Improving the intellectual capacity of the workforce through industrial participation, high quality research projects, and development of curriculum in computational and systems design aspects of materials is part of the Center’s goals.  

An I/UCRC not only contributes to the nation’s research infrastructure base, it also enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education.  The program leverages NSF funding with industry resources to support graduate students performing industrially relevant and interdisciplinary research.
