More than a century ago Milwaukee began to establish a reputation as a world leader in manufacturing. Much of that work has involved the use of metals that form the backbone of many of the products we use today.

At UW-Milwaukee, a team of scientists have been working on ways to create new, stronger and lighter metal composites that give products a competitive advantage over others.

Joining us on this edition of UWM Today are Pradeep Rohatgi, a UWM Distinguished Professor of Materials Engineering and the Chief Research Officer for a new company called Intelligent Composites, and Chris Jordan, the chief marketing officer of the company.
