The range and scope of our research is extensive and covers all of the major engineering disciplines - civil, mechanical, electronic and electrical, chemical engineering and computer science - and including energy, materials, artificial intelligence, with theoretical, experimental and modeling work underpinning all areas.
The breadth of our research portfolio provides an ideal platform for multidisciplinary research and enables us to undertake research that is able to respond to global challenges. To this end, we have three broad impact themes which are, Energy and Environment, Global Infrastructure, Health and Human Interface plus a range of enabling technologies.
