Review of Mechanical Engineering 2011

Supplementary content information

Working with a national panel of UK experts and the wider mechanical engineering community, EPSRC has conducted a review looking at the health of mechanical engineering research in the UK.

Mechanical engineering is an underpinning discipline, which is not only significant in its own right as one of the traditional pillars of engineering, but also due to the contribution that mechanical engineers have made – and continue to make - in other fields such as manufacturing and medical engineering.

This report provides a coherent view of the research and training performed by the UK mechanical engineering community, including areas of current and future strengths and benefits to industry.
