Research and innovation

The range and scope of our research is extensive and covers all of the major engineering disciplines, including cross cutting themes such as energy, materials, medical engineering and artificial intelligence, with theoretical, experimental and modelling work underpinning all areas. This provides an ideal platform for multidisciplinary research, enabling us to undertake high-impact research in areas recognised as providing critical global challenges.

Our research is delivered through our five schools:

Research Excellence Framework 2014

The results of the Research Excellence Framework 2014 sees all schools within the Faculty of Engineering achieving over 80% of research activity rated as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.

Our high research ratings enable us to continue to recruit the best research staff and students, invest in our facilities and continue to build links with industry and research partners in the UK and overseas.

Research degrees

We are interested in the brightest and the best students to join our research teams. We have a number of funded PhD projects and scholarships available across engineering and computing.

If you are interested in undertaking a four year integrated research degree we have places available in our Centres for Doctoral Training.
