The Institute of Engineering Systems and Design has the perfect environment for researchers to develop, boasting highly regarded academics, innovative projects and world-class facilities.
'Being part of iESD has been a very enriching experience for me. Having such a diverse and eclectic range of projects and researchers within the group has been incredibly inspiring. Most importantly for myself though, is the support I have received from the institute to push the boundaries and produce cross-disciplinary work, which has really helped me grow into a competent researcher.', Louise Manfredi, PhD research student.
