Our research staff in engineering are involved in a number of exciting research projects.
We work collaboratively with business, industry and academic partners to develop ‘real world’ applied solutions focused on knowledge based engineering, bioenergy, powertrain test and development, and advanced manufacturing and materials.
Research in this area is conducted in the following groups:
Knowledge Based Engineering is an innovative method for Design Engineering Automation, allowing businesses to model engineering processes for rapid product development.
The Bioenergy research group combines fundamental research with business engagement, product and process innovation and knowledge transfer.
Advanced Powertrain Systems supports a wide range of research, development and test programmes with the automotive industry and other research organisations.
The Advanced Manufacturing and Materials research and development group working closely with a number of manufacturing businesses.
