Industry relevant research

Our students break new ground and promote knowledge exchange for the aim and benefit of industry, the economy and society as a whole.

These projects range in size; from working with local businesses to develop and enhance practices, to collaborating on global astronomical projects.

We emphasise the importance of problem-solving through the latest cutting-edge ideas and state of the art technical knowledge.
