Our mission is to conduct world-class research in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering which fosters innovation and sustainability, supports social and economic development, and contributes to improvements in health and quality of life.
Our close involvement with industry ensures our research has both relevance and meaning. Our focus on applied research enables us to work with some of the world’s most renowned engineering companies. Partners include Airbus, BAe Systems, Bosch, Corus, Daimler, EADS, Fiat, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Messier-Dowty, Mitutoyo, Network Rail TWI, Parametric Technology, Physical Acoustics, Renault, Rolls-Royce, SAP, Siemens, Silicon Graphics, Stile Bertone, The Highways Agency, TRL, Water Development Services and Microchip, and WS Akins.
The Institute welcomes visiting scholars and is enthusiastic to collaborate with research institutions world wide. We have partnerships with leading academic institutions from all over the world and have had collaborative projects with more than 22 countries. We also actively engage with industry in Wales.
Research is conducted within a vibrant environment which has benefited from major strategic investment via directed SRIF funds of £2.4M into the Cardiff University Structural Performance (CUSP) laboratory and collaborative industrial partnerships.
