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 - our new purpose-built Engineering Building at Clifton Campus. Our staff have been selected from across the world and have backgrounds in industry, research and academia, this understanding of industry needs will benefit our students and collaborators in creating future engineers.

We deliver research and teaching in electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering and sport engineering. All of our taught programmes are built around core engineering fundamentals, therefore all of our students will be able to tackle various engineering problems.

We are characterised by four threads:

  • Tools: engineers need suitable tools to tackle engineering challenges, such as software, hardware, mathematics, and laboratories
  • Skills: engineers need the skills with which they can effectively use engineering tools
  • Creativity: we value creativity, so we inspire and  develop engineers who have great ideas so they can use their skills
  • Delivery: from start to finish, delivery of projects gives our graduates the experience of taking their creative ideas from concept to production

Despite being a new department we are already building a global reputation in areas including human performance and human factors, future materials, biomedical engineering, and robotics. We are working with industrial partners in technology, automotive, aircraft, marine, healthcare engineering, and with sports teams to help them beat world records.
