aluminium engineering center e.V.

In 2003 aluminium engineering center (aec) was founded as a non-profit registered association by ten engaged professors of RWTH Aachen, all of them intensively carrying out research in the field of aluminium and its applications. Through the merger of the institutes producing and also processing aluminium, aec offers large competence in the areas of material sciences, production, casting, forming, joining, coating as well as the application and recycling in building and automotive. It is the aim of aec to improve training and further education in the field of aluminium, to generate a basis for interdisciplinary research and development in the field of aluminium and to make known the potential of the material aluminium.
