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.

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. Here, we strongly collaborate with the WING Department (Industrial Engineering and Management) at CUAS.
New certificate course for SMART MATERiALS starts in March 2021.
The goal of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills
that will allow them to solve new challenging technical problems, using a
combination of smart materials and advanced 3D-printing techniques.
Five places in this course are still available. For more detailed information and registration please click here.
