The significance of growth and sustainability in a rapidly changing world has made it increasingly obvious that new challenges face the field of Mechanical Engineering that will inevitably change the industry once and for all.

The NETME Centre seeks to tackle these challenges with a multidisciplinary approach, supporting a wide range of research groups focused on three main areas – Aerospace Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Energy and Resources.

The strength of NETME is in integrating these groups to engage with the issues facing society and industry, now and in the future.
