School of Engineering
Our mission is to help address the UK’s well-documented shortage of engineering and technology graduates and to close the skills gap. We’re investing in education that supports the nation’s future economic growth by offering innovative teaching and learning in custom-designed, purpose-built facilities. By focusing on the needs of industry and working to attract high-calibre applicants, we aim to prepare the next generation of creative, ingenious problem solvers needed by employers.
Our courses are practically oriented with significant industry focus and our teaching staff combine academic excellence with a wealth of professional experience. Staff are active in research, have strong links with professional bodies and are well networked with national and international companies. Many employers have been sending part-time students to us for more than 30 years and so we are well placed to embrace links with employers to offer higher and degree apprenticeship courses.
