The department of Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management (DMEM) is a vibrant and active research community.

Our research is centred on the vision of 'Delivering Total Engineering'. We investigate processes, systems and technology to support and enable engineering from concept to remanufacture. Our vision embodies the university ethos of ‘useful learning’ through practical application of research and close collaboration with industrial partners.

Our research takes place through a number of world-class research centres and groups which sit within the Advanced Design and Manufacturing Hub, a cohesive and integrating framework for advanced manufacturing research across the Department and elsewhere in the Faculty and University.

We focus on five key research themes: creativity and innovation, materials, operations, sustainability and technology.
