The organization is a stable environment in which employees can develop and exercise their skills. Project Culture: Research in the Department for Mechanical Engineering The research conducted in the department of mechanical engineering is motivated by furthering the development of machinery and equipment which are a key part of a wide ranging field. This tends to attract creative, inquisitive, analytical and detail oriented individuals. Researchers as a general rule will have wildly varying schedules and requirements in terms of noise and working environments. To this end we will be individually interviewing all directly involved students and researchers.
