Excellence in research
The Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine
(FSTM) has undergone a remarkable development since the creation of the University in 2003. Its research has reached international recognition in all its main areas of research, and international leadership in an increasing number of topics.
With almost 600 researchers, the five departments conduct internationally visible research in Mathematics, Physics and Materials Science, Engineering, Computer Science, Life Sciences and Medicine. We aim at excellence in both fundamental and applied research.
Some of our priorities
Test new ideas and solutions
Objectives: develop an integrated structural monitoring model for demountable and reusable elements in a “design for
Novel numerical methods for real-world applications
Objectives: provide efficient simulations for the virtual testing of ropes, helping to improve their quality and reduce production costs.
Optimise or develop innovative products and processes
Objective: improve filters to tackle microparticles.
Modelling and interpretation of data
Objective: improve the analyse of data from the large national Parkinson study.
