Iconic Portraits of Mechanical Engineering

Iconic Portraits of Mechanical Engineering

This collection of photographs reveals the passion and creativity of engineering researchers. The exhibition shows the connection between engineering researchers and the mechanical artefacts and tools they work with.


Research at the Department of Mechanical Engineering explores some of the most challenging issues today. Whether searching for opportunities for sustainability and renewable energy, developing low carbon approaches and alternative fuels, or gaining a better understanding of the mechanics within the human body to support medical discoveries, we want to improve the world around us.

Lead academic: Dr Beverley Gibbs, University of Sheffield
