Building Living Machines

Living organisms represent the most sophisticated robust and adaptable autonomous systems we know. The approach of engineering autonomy is therefore complemented by reverse-engineering of biological systems to uncover new principles for the design and control of robots. Biomimetics builds on our University’s excellence in the physical and biological sciences drawing on world-leading empirical research on model organisms to synthesise novel soft robotic and biohybrid systems.

Flagship institutes

The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
