Organisational unit: Department

Organisation profile

At DMEM we seek to be the very best. We sit in the top ten of all UK universities in research performance power rankings, for both business and management studies as well as mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing engineering.

Research at DMEM focuses on three key areas. They are:

Product Design and Development.  Research into methods and computer support of the design process. Product design and development focuses on the development of computing technology to support a creative design partnership between man and machine, and then to deliver the underlying technology, techniques and approaches to industry.

Manufacturing Technology.  Focusing on sustainable manufacturing with an emphasis on metal forming and related fields such as process design, machine analysis and design, tool design and fabrication, materials and constitutive models, FE simulation and CAD/CAM.

Engineering Management.  Research centred on enabling sustainable performance in manufacturing and service enterprises - focusing on performance management, high value manufacturing, innovation, dynamic capabilities, supply/value chains.
