More about this group

Engineering Systems and Design research group

The Engineering Systems and Design group are concerned with researching and creating tools, methods, models and strategies to improve the engineering and operation of our future infrastructure and industrial systems. Fundamental to our research approach is the need to understand how the process of modelling relates to the process of practical intervention, with a particular focus on the methodological challenges of modelling and designing complex technical and socio-technical systems.

The group’s research interests and current projects reflect the industrial and societal challenges of:

energy;
sustainability;
resilience;
demand responsiveness and flexibility;
cost and frugality;
users (stakeholders);
risk and uncertainty;
informatics and emerging technologies.

Through consideration of these challenges we aim to create integrated approaches for modelling, planning, designing and learning from today’s systems through life, which will underpin a philosophy and toolset for modelling and designing our future engineering systems.
