What materials, manufacturing and design solutions do we need to create a more sustainable society? Which transformational technologies will revolutionise space access and exploration?

On top of this, how do we successfully transition to 21st century energy systems? Or help our key industries not only adapt, but thrive in a time of increasing automation?

The School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering tackles big-picture challenges through four research areas: Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing, Hypersonics, Energy Futures, and Future Autonomous Systems and Technologies.         

Driven by the strength of our teaching and industry collaborations, our vision is to do more than support a better future – it’s to train and empower the right people to take us there.
