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.
From sport to Aerospace and electronic to mechanical, our courses span the whole spectrum of engineering.

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.
With the impending Industry 4.0 approaching, NTU are launching a new engineering building to create the engineers of the future - a highly-skilled workforce equipped with the digital skills necessary to work with digital industrial technologies. Using our facilities, you will be given the tools you need to develop industry skills and knowledge of new technologies, everything you need to learn in order to engineer a better world.
Nottingham Trent University's new Engineering Building houses the Institute of Industrial Digitalisation, Robotics and Automation. All engineering undergraduate, postgraduate and research will take place in the engineering building.
