From heart surgery devices to powering the world with more efficient renewable energies and greener transport, Strathclyde engineering researchers are at the forefront of solving some of the major problems facing society.
Strathclyde is a leading international centre for engineering research. Multi-million pound investments by Research Councils, Government and companies such as Rolls Royce and British Energy mean that the Faculty of Engineering has access to the very best specialist research facilities.
The faculty of Engineering is at the forefront of engineering research. With staff and students from across the globe, we have a wealth of international experts working together to solve some of the major problems facing society today.
Working in conjunction with Industry, departments have collaborated to provide specific business solutions for many engineering sectors.
The Faculty also offers consultancy across all areas of Engineering. We have a variety of academic specialists who can offer this service across all business disciplines.
The Faculty has many exciting research projects and facilities. Here are some of our most recent
The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) is a partnership of the University of Strathclyde's department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM), the Mechanical Engineering department and global industrial manufacturing companies.The AFRC's activities range from blue-sky projects which will lay the foundations of future forming technology to trouble shooting on established industrial processes. A purpose built facility has been constructed near Glasgow airport and is scheduled to open in June 2010.
The Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory undertakes frontier research on visionary space systems through a research portfolio funded by the European Research Council, EPSRC, STFC, ESA and industrial partners.
One of the most powerful, single-installation supercomputers in a Scottish university has been switched on at Strathclyde. The £500,000 High Performance Computer (HPC) will help the University's Faculty of Engineering and Institute for Complex Systems tackle some of the most challenging engineering problems, from re-imagining aeroplane design for the best fuel efficiency to working out how to store hydrogen in nanoporous materials.
