    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.

CPD and training

In the rapidly changing technological world, engineers have an obligation to keep up with new developments. At the Department of MAE, we offer high-value training courses in a number of fields, and have recently launched a course in the design of low and zero carbon housing, accredited by the PassivHaus Institute in Germany.
