The Gas Turbine and Transmissions Research Centre (G2TRC) is a 45-strong multi-disciplinary research group focussed on developing new technologies, analysis methods and understanding for existing and future gas turbine core and transmissions architectures.

The engineering of high-performance gas turbine transmission systems requires competences and expertise in:
