About us

The Engineering Research and Innovation Group connects expertise from across the fields of engineering to develop innovative solutions to global challenges. 

Our expert multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams focus on: 

  • Advanced and Sustainable Engineering Materials  
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering  
  • Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

We're dedicated to building a better future by creating construction materials that are good for the planet, employing cutting-edge AI technologies for structural health monitoring, and developing techniques to upgrade existing infrastructure.

Our goal is to make sure the buildings and bridges we use every day are tough, environmentally friendly, and stand the test of time, benefiting society as a whole.

From groundbreaking advancements in photonics, optoelectronics, and optomechanics to transformative contributions in the realms of telecommunications, sensing, metrology, display, lighting, and health, we are at the frontline of progress in electrical engineering.

In the field of mechanical engineering, we confront challenges head-on, exploring the intricacies of control system design, aerospace materials, energy, thermodynamics, and heat transfer modelling. Together, we are shaping a future where innovation and sustainability converge to redefine the boundaries of what's possible.
