We are a thriving engineering community, proud of our successes in both teaching and research.
Our vision is to be internationally and nationally renowned for supporting and shaping industry. This builds on our history, application focused research and curriculum, and our engagement with industry.
The history of our University dates back over 125 years, and engineering education has always been at its heart. We have been encouraging women to study engineering since the 1920s and the institution began offering a dedicated women’s engineering course in 1930.
The School of Engineering today is an exciting environment where students get to work with each other on a range of projects, from problem definition through to solution design and implementation, and where our teaching staff guide students to the front line of innovation.
Thanks to our extensive links with industry, we provide ample opportunities for students to benefit from guest lectures, participate in field trips and secure industrial internships.
