Research collaborations with industry

The Faculty aims to deliver innovative research for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Your company could become a partner in the Schools' research and benefit by taking advantage of the expertise available in the university and its partners.

Each research project is unique and can be tailored to your requirements, both in technical content and organisation.

We can provide great flexibility:

  • Small or large projects.
  • Funded by a company or from public sources or a combination of these.
  • Opportunity to sponsor a student or employ a researcher.
  • Long term alliances and partnerships.

Types of Projects

The Faculty pursues challenging research projects that enable us to make significant advances in science and engineering to benefit industry and society. Through innovative research, we can help you advance your business, solve technical problems, improve your processes, develop new products and build the technical capabilities of your staff.

Businesses can interact with the university in a variety of ways. We understand the importance of adapting the approach to meet the needs of the project.

Commissioned Research Project

You could approach us with a specific research brief in mind - we would then undertake a commissioned research project on your behalf. This may be convenient if your company does not have relevant expertise or its own in-house research base.

Collaborative Research Project

Your company could enter into collaborative research with the university, working together on specific collaborative projects or within more speculative research partnerships. These projects combine the expertise of your company with that of the University to benefit both parties. Government funding is available to support collaborative research projects.
