High value engineering High Value Engineering (HVE) underpins progress in all areas of science and technology. Our research in collaboration with industrial partners such as Astra Zeneca and P&G is helping to make the products of tomorrow possible. In areas such as particulate engineering, nanotechnology, computational fluid dynamics and functional surfaces we are working to enable the solution of tough technical challenges.

A team of industry facing Research and Innovation Development Managers ensure that our fundamental expertise in engineering science will lead to more efficient and sustainable manufacturing processes, as well as creating societal impact through better products

We work closely with industry to identify the challenges requiring radical change in manufacturing and product design. Our range of skills and resources can help us to understand, solve and develop new areas for research.

Our Faculty of Engineering also offers a range of short courses, which are ideal for continuing professional development.
