Research

The greatest research looks beyond what’s known.

It has a mind for discovery and progress – to solve global challenges and create positive change. This is the kind of research we believe in at the School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering.

The work we do is organised around four centres: Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing (AMPAM), Centre for Hypersonics, Energy Futures, and Future Autonomous Systems and Technologies.

Our research is geared towards building sustainable societies, fuelling technological advancements in the aerospace and defence industries, transitioning to 21st century energy systems and navigating the challenges of a digitally-disrupted future.
