DEAR STUDENTS,

Welcome to our homepage! Since 2007 we have supervised more than 20 projects/master students in the field of granular materials and powders. These topics are partly belonging to our ongoing projects. Most of our research projects have a strong connection to the Dutch as well as international industry. 
Lists of projects currently offered at MSM can be found below:
