MSc Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

A winning combination of advanced teaching and invaluable research experience.

My research is complemented by the research work being carried out by the Energy Research Centre at the University so it’s really beneficial to have this expertise in the same field.

Dr Rachel Tomlinson

We have been working with Solvay Composites to develop experimental mechanics tools to gain a focused understanding of the damage mechanisms of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer composites.

These capabilities, and the understanding gained, are being used to aid customers’ design and usage of composites, and to help the company formulate improved systems for next-generation applications in the aerospace and automotive industries.
