Martin Heide Jørgensen


Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (M-Tech) is an innovative research and educational environment at Aalborg University. The mission of the department is to create knowledge about mechanical and manufacturing engineering within the areas of industrial production and mechanical systems and transfer this knowledge to graduates, society, consumers and businesses. Knowledge building is based on strategic and application-oriented research with a generic character.

 The profile of Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

The research and teaching of the department is oriented towards production conditions in the private and public sector and contain elements such as production, materials science, logistics, IT, organisation, product development, automation, mechanics and management.

The profile of the department is highly interdisciplinary. The fields of work give many opportunities for collaborating with the surrounding world. This also affects the research that often is carried out in collaboration with companies on an international standard.

 Research at M-Tech

Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering works within a broad range of research areas which are divided into nine research groups. Each group has its own focus areas:

  • Biomechanics - The AnyBody Research Group
  • Construction Management
  • Logistics - Centre for Logistics (CELOG)
  • Materials Processing Group
  • Materials Engineering and Science
  • Mechanical Systems and Mechatronics
  • Product Configuration
  • Robotics and Automation
  • Solid and Computational Mechanics

Research is conducted in international as well as national research environments in public organisations and private companies. Research includes both theoretical research, industrial research and research in the department's laboratories.

 Physical surroundings at M-Tech

The department has the disposal of several laboratories with modern equipment within the areas of cutting operations, welding, computer integrated manufacturing, plastics, testing and characterisation of materials, including polymers, metal, ceramics and microcellular and much more.
