Research is a huge influence on DMU life. It shows what we’re thinking, doing, and where we’re taking things next. A complex world demands creative ideas and practical solutions. Nearly 60 per cent of our research is internationally excellent, almost a fifth is world-leading, and we have a record of excellence on real-world improvements in health and wellbeing, infrastructure, creativity, economic growth, business and civil-society – challenges affecting everyone [REF, 2014].
We have internationally acknowledged research groups in cybersecurity, transport, energy, water, advanced manufacturing and creative industries. Research is crucial to industry, and to developing technology and the skilled workers of the future.
