Research Strategy


  • We will maintain and enhance our unified structure by building interdisciplinary research teams to address major global issues.
  • We work closely with partner departments on multi-disciplinary research and our innovative undergraduate courses.

  • We strive to be internationally leading in all aspects of our engineering research portfolio: Electrical and Electronic; Mechanical and Process; Civil and Environmental; and Systems and Information.
  • We will continue to invest in the physical research environment and community, to further enable multi-disciplinarity to address significant global challenges: Energy, Biomedical Engineering and Sustainable Cities.
  • We will work with industry and partner organisations to conduct enquiry-driven, fundamental and pioneering research.
  • We will provide high-quality research facilities to support the work of our staff and students.
  • We will exploit pathways that lead to significant impact to make the world a better place.
