Queen’s University Belfast pride in helping Rolls-Royce develop Aircraft Engines of the next generation

27 February 2019

The partnership between Queen’s University Belfast and the Rolls-Royce is strengthening over the years and the university feel pride in playing an important role in the development of aircraft engines of tomorrow for Rolls-Royce and creating high-value research jobs in Northern Ireland.

In the latest launched project, the engineering expertise from Queen’s will help Rolls-Royce’s Civil Aerospace Business understand how aircraft will change in the future and what those changes will mean for the engines it makes.

Over the last year the faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at University has launched more than £2m worth of research and development projects for Rolls-Royce, one of the world's leading industrial technology companies. It is defining and automating the creation of innovative and efficient structural models which will be used to understand the requirements of future generations of aircraft engines compared to those of today.

Professor Mark Price, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Queen’s said: “The global leaders, Queen’s and Rolls-Royce drive technology change because they strive to make their products better and better in a highly competitive market. This then drives us to be innovative in our research. Our research in the aerospace engineering field, and especially this structural geometry and design team, is second-to-none and it bodes well for further collaboration with industry in the future.”
