Research in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

The links on this page provide information on specialized research laboratory groups within the Department. Staff in these groups pool resources and expertise to work collaboratively on research projects within their areas of interest. Some individual members of staff work independently in departmental research facilities or collaborate with other groups within Monash. Other staff undertake research with local and international universities, with industry-based groups or with organisations external to Monash such as CSIRO and VPAC. Details of each staff member's research interests and their publications can be found on the `Academic Staff' webpage.

Mechanical engineering research involves studying mechanics including modeling, computation and experimentation. It also involves design, manufacturing as well as product development.
