 the mechatronics community at loughborough The research group has a strong national profile, being represented on the EPSRC College of Peers, on the UK Mechatronics Forum since its foundation in 1990 and acting as external examiners for Mechatronics Courses and PhD students at many UK Universities. The Mechanical & Manufacturing departments gained a rating of 5 in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise. Members average 2.5 Journal and 1 Conference papers per year.

The international profile of the group is equally robust. Members of the group are Visiting Professors, Academy of Science members or invited lecturers at universities around the world. There is a track record of successful Research Visitors and the group welcomes applications from high quality researchers seeking to enhance their skills and experience.

The group is a multi-cultural community of, typically, 7 academic staff, 3 contract research staff, 5 visiting researchers, 20 research students and a number of masters students engaged on their dissertation research project. The whole community totals circa 40 people.

Some of them are pictured here on a recent Mechatronics Research Seminar Day, with guest speakers from the Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany. This is an annual event when students present their work as part of their re-registration assessment.

The majority of the research activities are industrially funded or supported. Many companies form a secure working partnership to research and develop products and processes for mutually beneficial exploitation.
