Alumni

Since its creation in 2007, IMDEA Materials Alumni community has done nothing but grow. Two of the pillars that define the culture of our institution, performing excellent research in materials science and engineering and transferring our knowledge and technology to the industry, are the principles that propel the transfer of our PhD students and post-doctoral researchers to the best academic institutions and companies worldwide. On the right, a sample of the destinations of our Alumni is depicted.
