One of the largest research-led science and technology educators in the UK, our Faculty of Science and Engineering offers high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, teaching over 5,000 students across four specialist schools. With a reputation as a thriving, world-class teaching environment, our work impacts on health and wellbeing, technological advance and sustainability. We have trailblazing specialisms in Musculoskeletal Science, Microbiology, Advanced Materials and Surface Engineering, Vascular Science, Computational Intelligence and Big Data, Conservation Biology and Complex Systems. With a global impact, our exceptional research has given our faculty an international reputation for making a transformative contribution to the world around us.
Having recently celebrated the faculty’s 50th anniversary, we’ve invested an impressive £60m in laboratories, teaching spaces and technology over the last 10 years. Using our state-of-the-art equipment, our people are encouraged to develop their field of expertise, introduce contemporary teaching practices and to evolve our student learning experience. As one of our talented team you can expect a visionary environment fostering collaboration, enthusiasm, innovation and ambition. Our commitments to the Athena SWAN Charter underpin our dedication to implementing initiatives that seek to reduce gender imbalances in science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects.
Our research is firmly embedded in our teaching methodology. Whilst each of our schools has a distinct identity, our research is truly interdisciplinary and it is this interface of different branches of knowledge that enables genuine new discovery. You will be closely involved in delivering work with real-world impact, and cultivating lasting relationships with businesses, the government and the general public to share our innovation and expertise.
