Centre for Automotive Materials and Corrosion (CAMC)
Based at McMaster University, the Centre for Automotive Materials and Corrosion (CAMC) is located in the McMaster Automotive Resource Centre (MARC) and researches materials for automotive, industrial, and consumer applications. CAMC’s research focuses on materials engineering including themes like light-weight material systems, material degradation and protection, and joining issues as they apply to automotive material innovations. Particular focus is on the development of high strength steel and aluminum alloys intended for automotive weight reduction and safety applications.
With a wide range of instruments and capabilities, CAMC is also able to tackle challenges facing industries like pipelines, sensors, and biomaterials. Faculty, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students work together in CAMC resulting in high-level graduates with fundamental and applied knowledge of materials, testing, and design.
