Heterogeneous, Multi-scale and Multi-functional Composites Lab (HMMCL), led by Dr. Prasun Majumdar, is an active research group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of South Carolina. Our office is located at the Horizon-I Building in the heart of Innovista (which is known for a rising-star university, dynamic research, a shared goal, and an urban lifestyle). To explore the science behind the engineering, we work at the intersection of basic sciences and different applications as shown (interaction 1 & 2) in the simplified sketch below :
The state of South Carolina is poised for explosive in-state growth of its aerospace industry and the University of South Carolina is the only institution in South Carolina offering an advanced degree in Aerospace Engineering. Our group is proudly contributing towards the new Aerospace Engineering education and research (McNair Center).
We are actively looking for outstanding undergraduate, graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to fill several open positions. Please feel free to check open positions.
