Advanced Design & Manufacturing @ Bath

ADM @ Bath is a cross-disciplinary group with an active research and industrial portfolio in advanced design and manufacturing.

Our staff, students and innovative approaches link multidisciplinary, cross-platform manufacturing with the 'engineer-designer' to speed up the adoption of new materials, processes and technologies in the marketplace.


Our vision is to be the internationally recognised thought leader transforming engineering design and manufacturing research, education and practice - creating value and impact in an interconnected world.

Research excellence

We specialise in advanced engineering and manufacturing design. Our research tackles the global and social challenges faced by industrial sectors now and in the future.

People excellence

By challenging the status quo, our people continually seek to excel in developing engineering knowledge. We combine innovative research with effective design training to develop and inspire future engineers.


We stimulate and deliver sustained impact with our partners in an increasingly complex world.

Our team


Our engineering design team tackles complex, system-level problems, alongside tools for rapid development, creativity, simulation and virtual engineering.


Our advanced manufacturing team develops underpinning science, simulation and design, for innovative high-value additive and hybrid manufacturing.

Supporting our students

We supervise and support undergraduate students on design and manufacturing aspects of projects throughout their degree. Student projects include:
