Led by Professor XiaoQi Chen, this program capitalises on Swinburne’s research expertise in a range of manufacturing process technologies: materials processing, surface engineering, inspection and instrumentation, re-manufacturing, green technologies and processes, ore processing, hydrogen science, energy optimisation and energy harvesting. 

Within this program we develop resilient manufacturing solutions in close collaboration with industries such as the automotive, aerospace, steelmaking, energy, waste management and resource sectors. 

These are the three research themes of this program, with additional focus areas and related projects within them.
