Intelligent products & processes

Harnessing the latest science and technology to pioneer new and more intelligent ways of doing things is a cornerstone of university research. Coventry University, much like the city of Coventry itself, has a successful history of innovating solutions and techniques that add value to our economy – whether through knowledge transfer or commercialisation of a new idea – and we remain at the forefront of intelligent thinking with our cutting-edge research across a variety of fields.

Our award-winning Microcab hydrogen fuel cell cars – designed, built and developed on campus – are pushing the boundaries of low carbon vehicle development; our biotechnology specialists are carrying out world-first research to create a simulated heart in laboratory conditions to avoid the need to test drugs on humans or animals; and our manufacturing and engineering experts are working with industry to come up with a novel way to save weight in automotive systems.

These are just a few examples of the ways we’re putting intelligent thinking to real-world use. Find out more about our pioneering work by exploring the case studies below.
