Advanced Steel Processing and Products Research Center
Today students at the ASPPRC study primarily three types of steel: bar and forging steels; sheet and coated steels; and plate and hot rolled steels. Students conduct research to work towards either a Master’s of Science or Doctorate of Philosophy. In addition to research, the students work closely with corporate sponsors.
