Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering
IMPEE is a new, dynamic, multidisciplinary research Institute focused on promoting excellence across our main research themes: Biomedical Engineering, Digital Engineering, Energy Harvesting and Conversion, and Multiphase Flow.
The mission of this vibrant new Institute is to foster research excellence across its main research themes. Much of our work involves strong industrial links across a range of sectors and through our expertise, skills and experience we work together with industry to identify new areas of interest.
The research groups work across a range of domains in conjunction with many other Heriot-Watt Schools/Institutes, companies and academic organisation.
