Mechanical & aerospace engineering

Our research is carried out in award-winning and internationally recognised research centres in energy, aerospace, fluids and materials.

We apply our knowledge and understanding in mechanical & aerospace engineering (MAE) to solve challenges faced by industry and society.

Our research programmes have delivered projects from marine turbines for clean energy to lightweight material for efficient transportation. We have state-of-the-art laboratories and local access to a 3500-node region supercomputer.

Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021)

Strathclyde’s Engineering submission, which included the research of seven departments from the Faculty of Engineering, has the joint highest impact quality profile in Scotland and joint highest environment quality profile in Scotland, based on GPA as calculated by THE.
