Working with Industry

The Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering maintains close ties with industry, both through consulting and collaboration projects.

These projects allow industry access to our wide range of scientific equipment and the specialist skills of our staff, while keeping our staff up-to-date on the latest industry practices and developments.


We regularly collaborate with industry to conduct innovative research projects and further our scientific understanding of topics relevant to both. Our staff profiles will give an indication of our expertise and possible future collaboration opportunities.


We also work with industry to use our research expertise and specialist knowledge to provide solutions to our industry clients’ most challenging problems, allowing them to improve their businesses and keep one step ahead of their competitors.

A list of our staff members and their relevant expertise can be viewed on the staff profiles page and you can contact them directly if you are interested in arranging contract research or consulting on a specific problem.

Our Asset Integrity Management Centre and Vehicle Dynamics Group in particular both engage in regular consulting through our Enterprises division, and further information can be viewed by following the links below:
