Understanding what happens when objects are damaged is helping University of Oxford engineers develop new, exotic materials, systems, and structures.
Research by zoologists at the University of Oxford into how hoverflies achieve their exquisite control has led, rather unexpectedly, to a means of improving IVF techniques.
Think of electric vehicles and you probably picture sluggish hybrid cars -- but University of Oxford engineers are developing electric motors that power the world’s fastest sports cars.
Scientists at the University of Oxford are developing yet further a computer model that will forecast the environmental risks to Britain’s coastline for decades ahead. This will be of immense value to local authority planning departments.
Lighter, faster, more environmentally friendly jet engines are being created by University researchers and Rolls-Royce engineers.
The University of Oxford’s chemistry department leads the way in electrochemical sensors that can be used to detect the presence of drugs in saliva samples – or even measure how hot chillies are.
Alternative energy sources don’t yet pack the desired punch – but researchers in Oxford are changing that by developing fuel cells inspired by nature.
An engineering project at University of Oxford offers the possibility of autonomous personal transport, which could save people time, reduce emissions and make roads safer.
