Research Centres and Clusters
The School of Science, Engineering and Environment draws together a range of research centres and clusters that are making an impact in industry and wider society.
Spanning advanced robotics, the development of smart built environments and biomedical breakthroughs, our research exemplifies how our industry-focused collaborative approach can tackle many of the global challenges we face.
Leading robotics and automation
Since 1987, Salford has been a National Advanced Robotics Research Centre. A member of the National Robotics Network (NRN) and a spoke of the EPSRC, through our Autonomous Systems and Advanced Robotics (ASAR) centre, we lead research excellence in robots and artificial intelligence.
Creating a better sounding world
Funded by research councils, government bodies, and industry partners, Salford has led acoustics and audio research for over 60 years. Our research has shaped commercial audio products sold worldwide and set international regulations and standards.
Making Biomedical Breakthroughs
Biomedical researchers at Salford closely with regional hospitals and wider national collaborations with universities and research centres, including KidScan Centre for Children’s Cancer Research, to develop new and improved treatments and knowledge of parasitology drug action and diagnostics for malaria.
Creating Better Urban Futures
Our Applied Buildings and Energy group strives to better understand and address the issues of energy consumption in buildings. We lead research in building performance, electrical engineering, construction management, design, and social science.
