General Engineering Research Institute

General Engineering Research Institute (GERI)

World-leading research activity across a range of engineering fields

GERI has produced highly-rated research for over a decade and recently benefited from £1.6m of investment in buildings and specialised equipment. Comprising five major groups with individual histories reaching back to the 1970s, research conducted within the Institute includes optical metrology, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and laser processing.

Combining a wealth of experience from both industry and academia, GERI’s 40-50 full- and part-time researchers work with a number of major and in some cases unique pieces of research equipment. They have lent their expertise to numerous projects with visiting researchers and industry partners, from Merseyside SMEs, through the ERDF-funded Outreach Project, to UK and international companies, such as Balfour Beatty, Jaguar, Land Rover and Airbus.
