Meet our MSc students

The CORE Group currently has seven ongoing MSc dissertations, covering topics such as durability, behaviour under elevated temperature, fire exposure, and damage progression modelling of FRP materials. A definite commitment to improving the sustainability of fibre-polymer composites is also reflected in these dissertations, with three studies concerning bio-based and environmentally friendlier FRP solutions.
