Course summary

Programme overview

Engineering research at Bristol is organised into several faculty-level research groups. Most staff in the Department of Mechanical Engineering are members of one of the following research groups: Dynamics and Control; Solid Mechanics; Engineering Systems and Design; Ultrasonics and Non-destructive Testing; Robotics; Fluid and Aerodynamics.

Dynamics and Control

The Dynamics and Control group’s research activities span fundamental engineering science, where new insights are developed and experimentally tested, and applied research.

Solid Mechanics

Solid mechanics is about understanding the way engineering materials respond to loading to improve the efficiency and safety of structures.

Engineering Systems and Design

The Engineering Systems and Design group is concerned with researching and creating tools, methods, models and strategies to improve the engineering and operation of our future infrastructure and industrial systems.

Ultrasonic and Non-destructive Testing

The Ultrasonic and Non-destructive Testing group undertakes research into the fundamentals and applications of ultrasonic.

Robotics

Robots are set to impact on all aspects of our lives, from robotic exoskeletons that enhance our strength and mobility to robots that search for life in the solar system and beyond.

Fluid and Aerodynamics

The Fluid and Aerodynamics group undertakes computational research (using numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyse problems that involve fluid flows) and experimental research.

Careers Mechanical engineering PhD graduates are found in a variety of careers all over the globe, including world-leading research. Many works as consultants or as part of large-scale engineering industries.
