Departmen of Materials and Production's research is organised in three main sections:
- Sustainable Production
- Physics and Mechanics

The research group is concerned with autonomous robotics for manufacturing, agricultural and service applications. The employed robots include mobile robots on the ground as well as arial robots.
The group has as its core focus behavioral operations and innovation management, and it subscribes to broad notions of these.
The group has its core focus on conducting cutting edge operations, logistics and supply chain research to be transferred to practice in the manufacturing, transport and service industry.
The group is engaged in research on automation and semi-automation of complex manufacturing tasks.
The group are dedicated to initiate and coordinate research in this area and to develop the necessary competencies and capabilities to increase the future competitive strength of Danish industry.
The group focuses on research in the domains of manufacturing, transportation and defense.
The group focus on models and techniques to plan, analyse, diagnose and integrate logistic operations.
The group works on several fields of biomechanics related to orthopaedics, product design, sports, tissue engineering and computational ergonomics.
The activities of the group encompass fundamental aspects of solid and computational mechanics applied for design of cost-effective, resource-efficient mechanical systems and products.
The group bridges the traditional boundaries between the disciplinary areas of materials physics, materials processing, and materials science. This interplay between disciplines creates a catalytic environment conductive for the encouragement of materials research.
The research activities in the Physics group cover many aspects of solid state physics, materials and optics. Both fundamental and applied research is carried out with a strong focus on optical physics and laser spectroscopy, surface physics, solar cells and materials for electronic components.
For several years, exoskeletons have served as an effective aid in rehabilitation, but now the technology is also being used in industry which has discovered the benefits of exoskeletons such as fewer work-related injuries, fewer worn out workers and increased quality of life.
