Head of Mechanical & Material Research Cluster


Extension: 461


Welcome to the Centre for Research of Innovation & Sustainable Development (CRISD) Mechanical and Material Cluster website.


The CRISD mechanical and material cluster applies engineering principles and problem-solving techniques to manufacturing machines that enhance human life. In terms of application, mechanical and material engineering is involved in every aspect of life, from athletic equipment, multimedia devices, medical devices, automobile engines to aeronautical industries. Our ultimate goal is to conduct world-class research by continuing development in machinery and devices that enable humans to work on the ground, underwater, and even in space, which is in line with the success of the fourth industrial revolution. The centre provides a professional and multidisciplinary research environment, specifically in the mechanical engineering fields of mechanics, manufacturing, material science and engineering economics, as it is formed by a diverse group of experimentalists, theoreticians, and computational experts in these areas. The primary objective of the cluster is to elevate the performance and variability of existing intelligent manufacturing and machining technologies with in-depth knowledge of material properties.

CRISD mechanical and material cluster offers various research projects, including nano-material, natural and synthesis composites, metal, polymers, ceramics and their composites, biomass pyrolysis, material processing, and conventional and non-conventional machining and manufacturing systems.

Future's prospect

 The output of these research areas would be beneficial for both local and national industries in discovering innovative approaches, developing high-quality products, and elevating the manufacturing process's effectiveness. Students or graduates passionate about these research areas and intense in fundamental mechanics, mechanical systems, and material sciences are welcome to join our cluster.
