Welcome to CAMTEC

Centre for Advanced Materials and Related Technology

The Centre for Advanced Materials and Related Technology (CAMTEC) at the University of Victoria is a research centre committed to interdisciplinary work on advanced materials and technology.

The scope of this work covers a wide spectrum of research in theoretical and applied areas. With this in mind CAMTEC coordinates related research among the Departments of Chemistry, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Physics and Astronomy, and Mathematics and Statistics. CAMTEC members work in close association with scientists and engineers from the private and public sectors to ensure technological transfer to industry.

CAMTEC’s objectives are to carry out fundamental and applied research in advanced materials, to train technical and academic personnel in these areas, and to disseminate the knowledge gained from the research through scientific publications, conferences, workshops and seminars.

As part of the University of Victoria, CAMTEC serves as a teaching centre involving graduate students in the latest developments and applications of materials research. In each of the participating departments, members are continually developing new graduate courses in advanced materials.


CAMTEC invites scientists, engineers, and scholars from across the University community and private sector to work with us and at our shared facilities. Because we exist in order to foster collaborative and interdisciplinary work in materials science, it is natural and important that we strive to create inclusive research and work spaces. CAMTEC members all share responsibility for creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive culture. Consistent with these principles, we respectfully acknowledge that CAMTEC facilities reside on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen peoples.
