WKO - Research scholarships awarded to Maximilian Reiter and Anna Paulik for their master's theses at the Department of Materials Science

The research scholarships of the WKO Steiermark were awarded this year to two master students of the Department of Materials Science, to Anna Paulik from the Chair of Physical Metallurgy and Metallic Materials and Maximilian Reiter from the Chair of Design of Steels. Anna Paulik's thesis deals with the quantum mechanical calculation of the positioning of H in the crystal structure of NiTi shape memory alloys, which are to be used, for example, in future medical technology applications. That of Maximilian Reiter dealt with the development of a wear-resistant cast steel alloy for hot work rolls with increased high-temperature strength and was carried out in cooperation with the company Eisenwerk Sulzau-Werfen R. & E. Weinberger AG. The scholarships were awarded at a ceremony held by the WKO Steiermark in Graz on July 7.
