Engineering Science

What distinguishes the research at the School of Engineering Sciences is the extensive experimental activity. Several of its research groups are world leaders in their research areas.

The school's research covers almost everything from basic mathematics to applied mechanics. The school works with basic research theoretically and experimentally in almost all areas, often collaborating with international universities, colleges, research institutes, and industry.

The applied research is often a combination of theoretical, numerical, and experimental work and is conducted in most cases in collaboration with universities and industry both in Sweden and internationally. The research is conducted at the school's departments, which are also involved in its competence centres.
