Research profile

All mechanical engineering devices are made of materials, which must be strong and stiff enough, operate in an environment where transport of matter and heat flow are of crucial importance, and must be controlled to carry out user-specified functions.The department of Mechanical Engineering is built around three knowledge pillars which are designed to reflect the department's long-term fundamental research themes. In each of these pillars the aim is to integrate fundamentals, design and manufacturing. Each pillar consists of several research groups and each group is led by a full-time professor. They are:
