The Centre for Materials Engineering at UCT collaborates with the Centre for High Resolution Transmission Microscopy at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth. 

The main purpose of this collaboration is to (i) perform research that deals with the characterisation of power plant materials that are exposed to high temperature/high stress conditions, and to (ii) train and assist postgraduate students in the use and application of advanced electron microscopy and related characterization techniques.

This work links directly with the Eskom Materials Science programme at the University of Cape Town.”​
