Research and Education Center (REC) "Materials" was organized as part of the Don State Technical University (Rostov-on-Don, Russia) in 2009. It includes four laboratories:

  • Laboratory of anti-erosion wear-resistant materials and coatings 
    (head - Prof. Valeriy N. Varavka)
  • Laboratory of functionally graded and composite materials
    (head - Prof. Sergey M. Aizikovich)
  • Laboratory of precision casting and vacuum plasma technologies
  • Laboratory of forming of solid non-metallic materials

The center was established for the organization and management of research, improve the training and retraining of engineers and scientists and conducting joint scientific, educational and innovation policies.

REC "Materials" works on the principles of self-repayment with funding from the funds generated through research and development contracts with research funding agencies, state and private organizations, as well as by share of funds derived from incomes of commercial activity of REC "Materials", and sponsored assistance.

Since the establishment of the center, REC staff had successfully completed more than 15 research projects funded by the federal and departmental target programs, from state research plans funds, by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, by commercial orders of individuals and businesses, with a total funding of more than 40 million rubles.

Center for Collective Use of Scientific Equipment (head - Dr. Vladimir B. Zelentsov) is also being a part of REC "Materials" since 2013. We have special equipment for materials research, including nano-indenter, atomic force and scanning tunnel microscopes, facility for vacuum ion sputtering, cutting, grinding and polishing facilities.
