Research - College of Engineering and Technology- University of Derby


Creative Engineering powered by Advanced Technology and Data Science

Here in the College of Engineering and Technology we explore and create advanced technology and data science for innovative, clean and efficient engineering systems and materials. Our international research collaborations with CERN, Lockheed and Roche are helping to drive the College curriculum and provide opportunities for academic enquiry.

We provide high quality supervision and support to PhD students who aim to produce two journal and two conference publications of their work. Students can choose either a MPhil or PhD route.

Research is focused on a number of Research Clusters, Centers and Institutes. Details are shown below.
