From discovering new cancer treatments to inventing composite materials that revolutionise manufacturing processes, researchers at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering are at the cutting edge of research and development.

The breadth of our research spans across five areas. These areas are highly relevant to many facets of industry and the impact of our work is felt at a national and global scale.

Research AreasĀ 

Energy and Resilience is one of the main research areas of the UNSW School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. We research the fundamental enabling technologies for clean, safe and resilient power systems.

Within the Engineering Health Solutions research group, we solve medical problems related to device design and analysis, health robotics, data analysis and materials development.

In Robotics and Autonomous systems, we research and develop methodologies for sensing, decision making and control of mechanical and software systems. This research covers the theoretical areas of control systems, perception, autonomous systems and image processing.
