Department of Engineering Science
With internationally renowned researchers, we have one of the best department research records in New Zealand, and continue to excel in bioengineering, fluid dynamics, operations research, signal processing and solid mechanics.
The core research of the department is the construction of mathematical models of a wide variety of engineering problems, together with their solution. These procedures can be broadly categorised under the headings of Bioengineering, Mechanics and Operations Research.
Our core research can be broadly categorised under 'Mechanics' and 'Operations Research'.
Our staff who specialise in bioengineering carry out their research under the umbrella of the Auckland Bioengineering Institute.
Some of our staff are part of the Joint Graduate School in Coastal and Marine Science
Advancing our understanding of flow phenomena through mathematical, computational and experimental means.
Focusing on research, teaching and consulting activities related to geothermal energy, particularly on the numerical simulation of geothermal reservoirs.
The core research focus here is the use of optimisation techniques and simulation for the design and evaluation of networks.
Creating models based on a scientific approach using observation, data and analysis to assist in identifying solutions to management based problems.
Specialising in developing signal processing strategies for applications by adapting current models of signal processing techniques.
Focused on the modelling of geomechanics, thermomechanics, geotechnical problems and manufacturing processes for composite materials.
