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 - 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.

Engineering courses

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.

Services to business

The Engineering team provide consultancy services through our Scientific Services to Industry (SS2i). Organisations and individuals can access technical expertise through our facilities, knowledge base and equipment.
