University of Huddersfield Engineering

Engineering has a vibrant and rapidly growing research community with expertise in such diverse areas as precision engineering, intelligent interfaces, systems engineering, and diagnostics. Our research environment is lively and collaborative, and well stocked with cutting edge equipment. Our Centre for Precision Technologies is widely regarded as the best research facility of its type in the UK and one of the top three in Europe.

In recent years we have invested in significant new infrastructure incuding a Nanolab, CT facililities, high performance computing (in collaboration with the Science and Technology Facilities Council), FIB and TEM instrumentation, as well as laboratories for optics and diagnostics.

If you are interested in studying for a research degree please see our current research opportunities.

Institutes and Centres

EPSRC CIMAMCentre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology (CIMAM)
The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology’s rationale is to break new ground by creating the concept of the “factory on the machine” to deliver to UK industry “disruptive” solutions in the field of Total Machining and Advanced Surfaces.

Institute of Railway Research (IRR)Institute of Railway Research (IRR)
The Institute of Railway Research (IRR) at the University of Huddersfield was formed in August 2012 with the aim to become a world leading centre of railway engineering research.

 The Centre for Efficiency and Performance Engineering (CEPE)The Centre for Efficiency and Performance Engineering (CEPE)
With an international reputation as a world leader in the field of plant condition and performance monitoring, we aim to advance the scope and sensitivity of machinery fault detection and diagnosis and of plant performance and emissions monitoring.

Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT)Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT)
The Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT) is a centre of excellence for collaborative metrology research, solving real-world manufacturing problems through cutting edge metrology research in precision engineering. Our research is key to driving quality and cost benefits for industry by embedding metrology into manufacturing processes.
