We can help your business improve performance

Our academics and researchers conduct international leading research in the areas of engineering design, advanced manufacturing technologies, and operational business excellence.

Work with us and we can help your business perform better.

There are a number of ways that we can work with you, from short and sharp interventions like continuous professional development, to long-term collaborations like Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs).

Design, manufacture & engineering management students working on project

Student projects

Industrial engagement is a central part of our teaching practice. Every year we involve our fourth and fifth year undergraduates, and our postgraduate taught masters students in industrial projects.

These can be an ideal mechanism for you as a business to gain an appreciation of what the department can do for you, and perhaps whet your appetite for a more focussed involvement. Our students also undertake individual projects that they develop themselves - potentially with companies, and we encourage our students to take summer internships relevant to their degree through our Summer placement scheme.

Our projects include:
