We're recognised as one of the leading centres of research in Engineering in the world. Our research covers a wide range of topics, which are divided into three Challenge Areas.
Formulating innovative solutions to current and future energy related challenges and opportunities from both a UK and global perspective.
Understanding and exploiting the electronic, physical, chemical and biological properties of materials at the nanoscale and up.
Tackling the challenge of ensuring sustainability and resilience of the infrastructure that underpins our society and economy.
Our Research Challenges are important because they encourage interdisciplinary research within the Department and national and international cooperation. The scope of the Department's research is expanded even further through participation in cross-faculty Research Institutes.
