The Department of Engineering seeks to benefit society by creating world-leading engineering knowledge that fosters sustainability, prosperity and resilience. We share this knowledge and transfer it to industry through publication, teaching, collaboration, licensing and entrepreneurship. By integrating engineering disciplines in one department, we can address major challenges and develop complete solutions, serving as an international hub for engineering excellence.
The Department has strengths across the range of engineering disciplines, strengths organised and assured through our divisional structure. Explore our research via that structure by following 'Academic divisions' from the menu on the left.
Strategic themes running across the disciplines draw these strengths together to address major challenges. Follow 'Strategic themes' from the menu to find out more.
The formal structure of disciplines and cross-linking themes described above is enriched by a thriving mix of research topics. These pages highlight a range of those topics, with their multi-disciplinary collaborations and partnerships, both within the Department and outside, with researchers elsewhere, with industry, and with government. Explore the range of topics by following 'Research topics' from the menu.
