Mechanical Engineering


Materials, Structures & Manufacturing

This group is dedicated to the understanding and development of new materials and structures, as well as sustainable methods of manufacture.

Person in gear
Materials and structures underpin engineering: we use them to make everything from buildings to medical implants, phones to ice cream. Our group designs and characterises the performance of these materials systems at different scales using a range of techniques. 

Examples include synchrotron X-rays, mechanical testing, analytical modelling, AI methods, prototyping and full-scale implementation. We have strong industrial collaborations, as well as strengths in cross-disciplinary topics such as Materials and Manufacturing for Healthcare, Additive Manufacturing, Food and Plastic Waste.
