Organisation profile

The School of Engineering & Applied Science, with its tradition of quality and reputation for cutting edge research, offers students excellent opportunities to join in the process of discovery and creativity, and prepare for an increasingly diverse and technological world.

In today's modern technological society, scientists and engineers must work together with a variety of other professionals in their quest to find solutions to complex problems. Revolutionary advances in applied science and technology have broadened the horizons of engineering whilst simultaneously creating a multitude of challenging multidisciplinary problems in virtually every aspect of modern life.
Our focus is on the inter-disciplinary nature of engineering and applied sciences, the key technologies and their interactions.

The School is organised into Academic Groups, that bring together staff and students around cognate disciplines within engineering and applied science, for administrative and intellectual purposes.

The School's 6 Academic Groups are:

Fingerprint Dive into the research topics where Engineering & Applied Science is active. These topic labels come from the works of this organisation's members. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
