The Engineering Research Institute brings together a multi-disciplinary group of staff from a range of disciplines to undertake various forms of advanced materials research, including such topics as composites, materials characterisation, sensors, biomaterials, plasma processing, metal forming, nanoscience and nanofabrication. Strong International collaborations have been developed and large infrastructural and project funding has been a highlight of this rapidly growing research area.
Postgraduate students in Engineering will most likely work in one of the three main Research Groups or Centres, namely the Nanotechnology and Integrated BioEngineering Centre, the Engineering Compostites Research Centre and the Advanced Metal Forming Research Group.
