Our academic departments
Department of Biosciences
Welcome to the Department of Biosciences. We deliver innovative teaching and research in subjects including biomedical science, microbiology, biochemistry and pharmacology, with a vibrant postgraduate and PhD research community.
Department of Chemistry
Welcome to chemistry at NTU, part of the Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science. Our courses are taught in modern, innovative teaching spaces, offering excellent career prospects, including accreditation by The Royal Society of Chemistry.
Department of Computer Science
Welcome to the Computer Science Department at NTU. The department combines internationally significant research with an outstanding record for teaching excellence. Our state-of-the-art facilities and career-focused approach to course design provide the right conditions for students to succeed in their chosen fields.
Department of Engineering
The Department of Engineering was launched in 2017 with a vision to develop engineers that will shape the future. We are investing in our staff, facilities, and working environment in order to achieve our vision.
Department of Forensic Science
Forensic science is an exciting, industry-led subject area which uses science to investigate legal questions. Practitioners may work in a variety of roles and contribute to an investigation either through direct contact with the crime scene, the evidence or through opinions based on their expertise in a particular subject area.
Department of Mathematics
Our portfolio of courses is diverse and popular, covering foundation level through to a suite of BSc degrees, integrated Masters, postgraduate taught and PhD opportunities. The link between teaching and research manifests itself in enhanced 'hands-on' research opportunities for our students.
Department of Physics
Welcome to the physics team, part of the Department of Physics and Mathematics at Nottingham Trent University. We are dedicated to delivering outstanding and pioneering taught courses and world-leading, impactful research in the areas of physics, mathematics and engineering.
Department of Sport Science
Our department addresses current and contemporary issues within sport, exercise and physical activity in world-class facilities that students, researchers and industry can gain access to. Our courses encourage students to put theory into practice by providing multiple opportunities for hands-on learning to enhance the student experience.

Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021
In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, 86% of NTU's research impact was assessed to be either world-leading or internationally excellent. The overall quality of each Unit of Assessment NTU submitted to REF in 2021 also saw an improvement from the previous REF in 2014.
Our research centres
Centre for Health, Ageing and Understanding Disease (CHAUD)
CHAUD is structured around four themes covering various aspects of human health and chronic diseases, including cancers which are treatable but not curable, diabetes and other inflammatory conditions.
Centre for Computer Science and Informatics (CIRC)
Harnessing enabling technologies ranging from machine learning, AI, and advanced display technologies, to intelligent sensors and robotics to drive advances for individuals and society.
Imaging, Materials and Engineering Centre
To solve modern engineering problems requires an interdisciplinary approach. At IMEC this principle is embedded in the way we do research in the applied sciences and engineering, with our strengths in imaging, materials, and smart and medical technologies.
Sport, Health and Performance Enhancement Research Centre (SHAPE)
SHAPE was launched in 2015 to provide a structured research environment in which to investigate the biological, behavioural and societal impact of sport and exercise for human performance, health and well-being.
The John van Geest Cancer Research Centre
The Centre has a strong research base which aligns to the Health and Wellbeing strategic theme, the Cancer Biology, Immunology and Therapeutics theme and the Biosciences subject area here at NTU.
