Our research

The Department of Mechanical & Mechatronic Engineering is internationally competitive. All members of its staff are active in research.

The research conducted ranges from that of a fundamental nature through to that which is strongly applications-driven (and which may be industrially sponsored). An emerging strength of the department is its ability to form and work in multidisciplinary teams.

Our current areas of research are:

Mechanical Engineering

  • Thermodynamics & Heat Transfer
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Vibration & Noise
  • Materials
  • Manufacturing

Mechatronic Engineering

  • Robotics
  • Industrial Automation
  • Remote Sensing
