Supporting industry via inter-disciplinary research and next generation innovation

High-Tech Manufacturing is a critical component of all advanced economies. Innovation and transformation within our manufacturing sector, including the uptake of digital technologies, is driving the evolution of manufacturing in key industry sectors such as space, agriculture, defence, health and energy. With an ever growing awareness of environmental, social and corporate governance, our manufacturing research is multidisciplinary, seeking to bring clean and green technologies to the forefront as we tackle real world, industry relevant challenges. Our scientists and engineers, many with first-hand experience of working in industry have a diverse range of research capabilities, including:

  • Materials science and engineering
  • Optical design and engineering
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Product testing and evaluation
  • Surface Science & nano-technology
  • Design and deposition of multi-layer thin film coating systems
  • Developing environmentally robust coatings for real world applications
  • Process development and scale-up
  • Device design and fabrication
  • Clean and green manufacturing technologies
