Research Applications

In collaboration with our academic and industrial partners we aim to develop new techniques and technologies that address specific challenges and priorities in each of our cross-cutting application areas:

Aerospace and Transport

Rolls Royce

ACSE has always been at the forefront of research into systems and control engineering applied to aerospace and transport. Our work seeks to reduce operating costs, fuel consumption and environmental impacts and improve performance.

Energy and Environment

Wind Turbines

Our research into control technologies applied to energy and environment will improve the efficiency and security of energy generation, reduce carbon footprint and help us to understand and manage the risks associated with climate change.

Life Sciences and Healthcare

Alcohol PolicyOur research is using systems engineering methodologies and tools to address some of the challenges posed by an aging population and the complexity of biological systems, which will increase quality and reduce the costs of heathcare.

Manufacturing and Robotics

Friction Stir Welding

ACSE is in a very strong position to address key challenges in manufacturing and transport. Manufacturing is one of the key technological challenges in developing engineering products of the future and maintaining the UK as a global economic power.
