The multidisciplinary Materials Technology Laboratory (MTL) of Northwestern's Department of Materials Science and Engineering was founded at MIT in 1985 by its Director, Prof. Greg Olson, as the multi-institutional Steel Research Group (SRG) and reorganized in 1988 with Northwestern as lead institution. The mission of the program is the creation of the methods, tools and databases for the systems-based multiscale multidisciplinary computational design of materials, using high-performance ferrous alloys as an initial test case.
