Faculty of Engineering

About us

The Faculty of Engineering is one of the largest engineering groupings in the UK having in excess of 700 staff, 3,000 students and an annual turnover of around £60m.

The high quality of our research was confirmed by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), which means we can continue to recruit the best research staff and students, invest in our facilities and continue to build links with industry and research partners in the UK and overseas.

Our research feeds directly into our teaching ensuring that our courses are at the forefront of thinking in their respective fields.

Our teaching and research is delivered through our five schools:

The range and scope of our research is extensive and covers all of the major engineering disciplines, including cross cutting themes such as energy, materials, medical engineering and artificial intelligence, with theoretical, experimental and modelling work underpinning all areas.

This provides an ideal platform for multidisciplinary research, enabling us to undertake high-impact research in areas recognised as providing critical global challenges. Much of our research is linked to industry, with major collaborators throughout the UK and Europe. We have also aligned our Faculty with industry sectors such as digital technologies, energy, high value chemicals and medical technologies.
