Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
The practical and experimental skills of mechanical engineers are what build planes, formula one cars, ships, power stations and help doctors cure people. Our freedom of movement and comfortable lifestyles come from their work.
ISRU Mechanical Engineering is a research led department that is a dynamic and vibrant place to study and carry out research, whether you are a prospective student, researcher or industrial collaborator. We have particular strengths in marine engineering and engineering for the environment and medical purposes.
The department demonstrates excellence in research, independently confirmed with 55% of our work being recognised as either world leading or internationally excellent. Our webpages can only give you a flavour of our department’s range of activities; feel free to contact the academic staff directly for more information on their specific areas of activity.
