The School of Engineering's research focuses on providing innovative and practical solutions to industrial problems, with particularly strong industry-focused research in the oil and gas and renewable/sustainable energy sectors. Staff's research is well recognised for transferring new technologies to industry through spin-out companies, patents and knowledge transfer partnerships, developing original ideas through to applications with particular emphasis on implementation for wealth creation and life-quality improvement. The School has developed multi-disciplinary research groups in Well Engineering, Multiphase Flow Modelling, Condition Monitoring, and Advanced Materials.

Further areas of particular interest include:

Asset integrity; corrosion; environmental engineering; renewable energy;
Failure prediction and damage assessment;
Lasers and applications; micromechanics; robotics;
Mathematical and numerical model development;
Telecommunication and internet network.
