Materials Australia is committed to the materials technology industry and its practitioners. Materials Australia serves engineers and organisations through networking, advocacy, training, events and associations with related bodies in Australia and overseas.
Materials Australia has provided valuable assistance to engineers and industry since 1946. The society was founded over seven decades ago from the combination of numerous related groups to meet the needs of engineers and metallurgists. Since then, Materials Australia has kept pace with technology and innovation and now encompasses light alloys, ceramics, composites and new metals.
Engineering the components of tomorrow
Materials engineering is an expansive discipline that is integral to every industry that serves our modern world. The design and development of new materials is critical to achieving goals related to efficiency, sustainability and performance. Enhanced materials mean lighter, stronger parts that equate to faster, smoother functionality of tools, industrial equipment, vehicles and more.
Community and development for materials engineers
Materials Australia serves both individual members and organisations, with members from the fields of materials science and materials engineering, industry and disciplines reliant on materials technology.
Materials Australia offers many benefits to members, from networking and events to international affiliations for mobility and the exchange of ideas with professionals from around the world. Members can also become a Certified Materials Professional, earning the CMatP post-nominal through Materials Australia accreditation.
