Siemens puts great value on engagement with partner universities such as Durham University’s Department of Engineering: by collaborating with the relevant faculties and university student societies, graduates receive a much more realistic view of what careers they could embark upon. Siemens is a proud partner of the university’s employer engagement scheme.
Our interdisciplinary research programmes, world-class facilities and unique range of expertise makes collaboration with industry attractive, rewarding and mutually beneficial. In partnership with Durham University Business and Innovation Services, a range of avenues for collaborating with industry (from SMEs to multinationals), business engagement and research commercialisation activities are available within the Department.
Consultancy activity by individual members of staff benefits both the person and the University, the research expertise of individual members of staff can be found via our staff pages.
If consultancy is not the best route for you we are able to put you in contact with other groups who can offer alternatives.
The commercialisation of our research activity takes many forms, including patent protection, license agreements and collaboration with appropriate industrial partners. The Research Commercialisation team's mission is to disseminate research outcomes via the commercialisation of ideas and new technologies. Technology transfer specialists work closely with individuals and groups across all three faculties.
We have a proven track record for the commercial exploitation of new products, processes and strategies arising from the internationally leading research base. The Research Commercialisation Team's aim is to:
Research in the areas of energy delivery and computational geomechanics has enabled partnerships with industry. Our staff are actively working with these organisations to develop new solutions to pressing societal and technological problems. We maintain Department relationships with other blue-chip engineering companies (e.g. BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, BP) and SMEs.
