We believe in strong and seamless integration of all: Teaching, Research and Societal Outreach. All of these are, should be, intimately connected and essential. In both, teaching and research, our emphasis is on higher levels of learning: Creativity, Synthesis and Analysis, incorporating:

  • Multidisciplinary approach to materials education,
  • "Big picture" approach to research undertaking,
  • Synergy, collaboration and cooperation within groups, across the seas and beyond the traditional boarders,
  • Attaining excellence in education via integrating research and teaching.
