Welcome to the School of Engineering
The School of Engineering combines state-of-the-art R&D and teaching facilities with research informed teaching and industrial links.
As the first new Engineering school in the UK for more than 20 years, we recognise the importance of engineering to the future of the UK economy. The School was part of a £37 million project, with £7 million allocated to build our dedicated Engineering Hub.
Students of our engineering programmes will benefit from industry insider knowledge on our innovative and exciting degree courses. Our degree courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
The School has been listed as a principal partner of Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Limited who shared our vision of producing graduates who are industry ready and academically excellent. Siemens have transferred their R&D equipment to our Engineering Hub, alongside relocating their training team.
The School is already achieving a reputation for its innovative and pro-active approach to engagement with business, and for research excellence. Awards received include the Lord Stafford Award for Open Collaboration with Siemens (2011), IET Team Award (highly commended) 2011 and 2010, and the IMechE Charles Sharp Beecher Prize 2010.
