Engineering and Digitalisation
We are working with partners to produce a modern curriculum, highly skilled engineers, and shared access to talent, knowledge and innovation through collaborative research.
Key areas of research include smart materials, medical technologies, advance materials, digitalisation and cognitive robotics.
Our current engineering and digitalisation strategic partners are:
- AECOM - AECOM is the world's premier infrastructure firm, delivering professional services throughout the project lifecycle.
- Fujitsu - Fujitsu is a leading provider of IT products and services for the global marketplace including hardware, software, networking, business solutions, and more.
In 2017, following a £50m investment in state-of-the-art facilities, we launched our new engineering courses.
Our innovative engineering courses have been created with input from engineering companies and industry bodies.
We asked companies such as Speedo, Pepsico, 3M, British Steel, Bombardier, Rolls Royce and the Institution of Engineering Technology (IET) what their ideal engineering graduate would look like and what skills they would have.
With this knowledge, our engineering courses give students relevant engineering skills and industry experience, making them highly employable.
