McMaster Steel Research Centre

 

The SRC combines research objectives established by the steel industry with government funding supporting wealth creation through science and McMaster’s own identification of Science-based Manufacturing as a key research area. Developing exploitable technologies motivates and sustains a talented academic research team for the benefit of the steel industry, while producing a stream of knowledgeable engineers ready to make careers in steel.

The SRC combines research objectives established by the steel industry with government funding supporting wealth creation through science and McMaster’s own identification of Science-based Manufacturing as a key research area. Developing exploitable technologies motivates and sustains a talented academic research team for the benefit of the steel industry, while producing a stream of knowledgeable engineers ready to make careers in steel. There are three components to the SRC’s mission:

Research leading to commercially relevant new approaches to ironmaking, steelmaking process control, waste processing, steel product design and metal forming technologies.
Training of highly qualified personnel to provide the means of transferring new technology to the steel industry.

Continuing education for steel industry engineers to enhance the receptor capacity for innovation.
Guidance from the Centre’s industrial members is an essential principle of the organization. We have built up a membership consisting of the world’s major steel producers, as well as suppliers and engineering consultants to the industry.
