As of January 1, 2011 lists more than 20 research subjects in the new institution. They are organized in eight sections as follows.
Wood Physics, Wood Technology and Wood Products Engineering
Three research groups, all based in Skellefteå, with one common denominator - research related to wood.
Mathematics, Mathematical Statistics and the third-cycle subject area
A device with a strong common commitment to undergraduate education.
Energy Engineering and Electric Power Engineering*
The research groups will continue the cooperation which has already begun by that today are common graduate students.
* Planned to be a new third-cycle subject area.
Solid Mechanics and Material Mechanics
Two subjects that have an established relationship, for example in CHS - Center for High Performance Steel.
Research and education in the field of machine components, system of components and tribology. Tribology is the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion, encompassing all aspects of friction, lubrication and wear.
Polymer Composite Materials, Wood and Bionanocomposites, Engineering Materials and Applied Physics
A group of materials important common denominator.
Fluid Mechanics and Experimental Mechanics
Joint research fields of experimental studies of fast processes and slow change.
Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing Systems Engineering
Related topics in the evolutionary chain in product manufacture.
