World-leading research

Our research aims to help:

  • Companies develop life-changing products and services, build better businesses, create meaningful jobs, and improve the environment for the future.
  • Governments foster innovation and enterprise to deliver social and economic benefits.

Our researchers work on a wide range of manufacturing-related topics including:

  • new materials and advanced production technologies
  • digital manufacturing technologies and data analytics and how they can be used to transform factories, supply chains and business models
  • how new technologies can be nurtured through the development phase and turned into successful businesses.
  • effective business tools and processes (such as roadmapping) that can help organisations achieve their strategic goals

World-class education

We provide undergraduate and postgraduate education to create the manufacturing leaders of the future.

Real-world application
