Research themes

Research is fundamental to The University of Manchester. We’re committed to both the discovery of new knowledge and its application for social and economic value.

The outstanding facilities and educational environment of MECD will culminate in academic research which will be inspired, socially progressive and industry-focused.

Our research beacons are exemplars of interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-sector partnerships solving global challenges with Manchester solutions.

Our research beacons cover:

From artificial intelligence and robotics, to sustainable energy solutions and space craft, these are just some of the exciting themes being developed within the walls of our new campus.

We also have a number of interdisciplinary research themes across and within our engineering and materials science disciplines. The move to MECD will allow our researchers to foster even more meaningful collaborations.
