We are internationally recognised for our excellence in research, attracting research students and staff of the highest calibre. We have major programs in Autonomous Systems, Biomotion, Design and Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Integrated Computational Materials, Robotics, Thermodynamics and Manufacturing and Industrial Systems.
We use computational models of the human musculoskeletal system to describe and explain muscle and joint function during functional activities, such as walking.
Fluid Mechanics examines many aspects of fluid mechanics with a focus on turbulent flows.
Integrated computational materials
We design new materials using computational and experimental methodologies.
Manufacturing and industrial systems
Helping to create a competitive advantage across manufacturing and process industries by accelerating digital transformation and delivering holistic and integrated solutions for sustainable outcomes.
Our robotics research includes fundamental research in the area of intelligent manipulation of system dynamics, as well as translational research.
We undertake studies in transport, power generation and energy systems, with a focus on low emission technologies and energy efficiency.
