Course summary

Energy and Environment is a research theme within which you can focus your studies as part of our suite of Engineering research programmes.

The wide ranging research theme of Mechanics, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing incorporates cutting edge research which fosters innovation and sustainability, supports social and economic development, and contributes to improvements in health and quality of life by ensuring the safety and best performance of materials and structures.

The research work carried out under the Mechanics, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing theme develops, validates and verifies reliable models alongside robust, accurate and efficient simulation tools to describe and understand complex non-linear systems, both natural and engineered, on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales, with an emphasis on advanced materials and structures.

The research also focuses on the development of innovative, advanced and environmentally friendly technology, together with its effective and sustainable implementation via suitable hardware, software or management systems to applications within the transport, energy generation and manufacturing industries.

Research

The Mechanics, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing theme is made up of four specialist research areas:

  • the Advanced Materials and Computational Mechanics Group
  • the High Value Manufacturing Group
  • the Mechanical and Structural Performance Group
  • the Tribology and Contact Mechanics Group.

Close involvement with industry ensures that the research has both relevance and meaning. This focus on applied research enables us to work with some of the world’s most renowned global engineering companies, whilst also contributing to the needs of the local region.

The main research areas include:

  • Advanced Materials and Computational Mechanics
  • Tribology and Contact Mechanics
  • Aerospace Engineering
