Technology & Design
Good design is at the heart of an innovative society. It enables us to tackle the challenges of an ageing population and economic growth, while balancing the need for long-term sustainability. We have design engineers working on biomedical engineering, applied artificial intelligence, tribology, creative design and design modelling, advanced materials and material evaluation, renewable technology and sustainable design.
