Engineering
  • 59% of our engineering research is recognised as world-leading and internationally excellent, 90% of the impact submission was rated as outstanding/very considerable (REF 2014)
  • We offer designated areas for the built environment, computer-aided design and manufacture, control systems, electrotechnology and telecommunications, and specialist pilot plant facilities for chemical and mechanical engineering
  • We have on-campus research centres in construction, innovation and research, manufacturing and clean environment management
  • We emphasise the vocational and applied nature of our postgraduate courses - several have been accredited by professional bodies
  • We have recently embarked on a multimillion-pound project to expand, upgrade and refurbish our science and engineering laboratories with new technical facilities and equipment – you benefit from these throughout your studies

First-class facilities

You study in the Stephenson building, a purpose-built, high-quality learning environment. Alongside seminar rooms and a 200-seat lecture theatre there are specialist engineering laboratories. These include designated areas for the built environment, computer-aided design and manufacture, control systems, electrotechnology and telecommunications. Specialist pilot plant facilities for chemical and mechanical engineering are close by in the Orion building.

A new nanotechnology facility allows typical semiconductor processes such as photolithography, and material deposition and etching techniques to be carried out in a controlled environment. Other microfabrication systems are integrated into the facility, together with atomic force microscopy equipment.

Research

Engineering research by staff in the School of Science and Engineering has been highly commended with the national Research Excellence Framework 2014, rating 59% of our research as world-leading and internationally excellent, and 90% as world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of impact.
