The department’s research focuses on developing the next generation of devices, machines and systems. This translates to a focus on new technologies that are more efficient, more durable and thus more sustainable.
Our research approaches problems from two directions – energy and mechanics:
Energy technology research at the department consists of the study of energy systems, thermodynamics and combustion technology. Within these areas, research delves into industrial processes, heating, energy use in buildings and more. In our work, we use state-of-the-art tools and approaches in modelling, computation and experimental research.
