Centres and institutes

We work closely with several interdisciplinary University research institutes and centres.

Other partners

Along with the centres and institutes mentioned above, we benefit from a number of other important collaborations.

Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC)

The Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) fills a critical gap in the ecosystem for graphene and 2D material research, development and application in the UK.

The Department enjoys usage of the facility - the University’s second world-class multi-million pound graphene-focused centre - which sees industry-led development in applications through partnerships with academics.

Find out more about the GEIC on the University’s graphene website.

N8 High Performance Computing (N8 HPC)

N8 HPC offers a high performance computing facility which is shared between the ‘N8’ group of universities.

Manchester X-ray Imaging Facility (MXIF)

Our Department uses the Manchester X-ray Imaging Facility (MXIF), which includes a suite of 10 world-class complementary non-destructive 3D X-ray imaging instruments.

Find out more on the MXIF website.

The Diamond Manchester collaboration

Since 2010, the University has enjoyed a collaboration with Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron science facility.

This allows researchers in a wide range of fields to create high-quality 3D images of samples including engineering components, biomaterials, fossils, organic materials and energy devices such as fuel cells.
