Institute of Mechanics, Materials and Civil Engineering

The Institute of Mechanics, Materials, and Civil Engineering (iMMC) at the Louvain School of Engineering (EPL) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) is a leading international center for research in engineering. Its core strengths span several of the major engineering disciplines, and are grouped into five inter-related topics:
  • energy, thermodynamics, and chemical engineering
  • mechatronics and biomechanics
  • processing, materials, assembly, and structures
  • fluid mechanics, environmental engineering, and geomechanics
  • numerical and computational methods

The institute has five divisions that are:
