Mechanical engineering at Örebro University is dealing with the fundamentals of mechanical engineering and its application in products and industrial systems. Research conducted within mechanical engineering and the production field entails optimisation and control of production systems, manufacturing processes as well as optimisation of complex material systems. Within the field of machine design, in the borderland between design and production, research is undertaken into the development of computer-aided design and its links to product development and industrial service processes (preparation, virtual factories etc.).
Research is mainly conducted in cooperation projects with industrial partners, but also in collaboration with other universities and institutes of technology.
