Welcome to the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining
This centre is directed by Professor Y. (Norman) Zhou. The primary goal of the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining (CAMJ) at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada is to develop new and innovative technologies for materials joining. CAMJ has cutting edge laboratory facilities and research areas to collaborate with leading companies in the industry for research and development. CAMJ trains students on the undergraduate, Masters, PhD, and Post Doctoral levels and collaborates with students from foreign institutes of excellence to extend their research.
The projects taken up in CAMJ are from the following areas:
- Microwelding - laser and resistance microwelding for medical applications
- Microjoining - soldering and wire bonding for electronics
- Nanojoining - practical interconnection and construction technologies of nano-mechatronics and molecular devices
- Laser, arc, resistance and friction stir welding - automotive applications
