CSIRO’s new division

CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE) division has been formed to support Australia’s manufacturing industry, from the amalgamation of Melbourne-based Manufacturing and Materials Technology and Sydney-based Industrial Physics.

“CMSE provides a coordinated approach to materials design, creation, characterisation and application, particularly for the manufacturing industry,” Chief of the new Division Dr Calum Drummond said.

CMSE’s ancestors have a long track-record in applying world-class science to benefit local industry.

“Our goal is to be the provider of choice for innovative research and development in materials science and engineering to Australia’s manufacturing industry,” Dr Drummond said.

CMSE is CSIRO’s fourth-largest Division with 310 research staff. It is spread across six sites in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
