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, digitilisation and cognitive robotics.

New engineering courses

In 2017, following a £50mn investment in state-of-the-art facilities, we launched our new engineering courses.

Our new and 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.

Prosthetic eye

Our research

Combining innovative design and expertise, we're working with partners and departments across the university to create smart textiles, medical devices and robotics.

We are discovering innovative and cost-effective solutions to challenges, and inventing new technologies, devices, diagnostics and wearables. Issues we focus on include boosting health and sports performance, helping manufacturers of advanced materials, and improving prosthetics.
