Welcome to


the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining!

This Centre is directed by Prof. Y. (Norman) Zhou. The primary goal of CAMJ at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, is to develop new and innovative technologies for materials joining. CAMJ has cutting edge laboratory facilities and research areas to collaborate with leading companies in the industry for research and development. CAMJ trains students on the undergraduate, Masters, PhD, and Post Doctoral levels and collaborates with students from foreign institutes of excellence to extend their research.

The projects taken up in CAMJ are from the following areas:
  1. Microjoining (soldering, wire bonding, laser and resistance microwelding) for medical and electronic applications

  2. Nanojoining: practical interconnection and construction technologies of nano-mechatronics and molecular devices.

  3. Laser, arc, resistance, and impact welding for automotive applications

  4. Brazing (diffusion brazing, ceramic/metal bonding, etc.) for aerospace and other applications
