About CiSMAT

CiSMAT (Carinthia Institute for Smart MAterials and Manufacturing Technologies) is a newly founded center, dedicated to the research and development of innovative solutions for the Industry of the Future. It is part of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS), and is supported by the KWF (Kärntner Wirtschaftsförderungs Fonds).

CiSMAT is based on four groups conducting research in the fields of

  • Smart materials and structures 
  • 3D printed composite materials
  • Agile Manufacturing
  • Sensor integration in Mechatronic Systems

CiSMAT works closely with a network of local and international companies, which it also supports in their transformation efforts towards Industry 4.0.

CiSMAT for Entrepreneurs

 

Beyond our specific areas of research, we wish to use our varied and complementary skills to help our students, colleagues, partners and start-up founders to test the technical feasibility of new concepts and possible innovative solutions to challenging problems. This work is carried out in particular within the framework of « Innochecks » projects, and Master theses. Technical feasibility studies can also be strongly supported by the KWF (see “Start F&E” Program).

Here, we also collaborate with the WING Department (Industrial Engineering and Management) at CUAS.
