We develop and nurture the world’s top engineering talent to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex world by integrating our research and education programmes in order to support the technical and commercial needs of society and to extend the boundaries of current knowledge.

We have a multi-national community of research students who form an important part of our internationally recognised research activities.

Industry leading teaching

We support the technical and commercial needs of society and extend the boundaries of current knowledge. A number of programmes are accredited by one or more professional bodies, including the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institute of Measurement and Control (InstMC), the Royal Aeronautical Society, and the Energy Institute.

Graduates of these programmes are highly sought after by industry and commerce worldwide, and have gone on to work with companies including Accenture, Airbus, BAE Systems, Caterpillar, Cisco, EDF Energy, E.ON, Ford, Hewlett Packard, Huawei, IBM, Jaguar Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Rolls-Royce, Siemens AG, and Tata Steel.

Extracurricular opportunities

We offer a range of activities that may appeal to your interests for you to get involved with outside of your studies. A popular society is the Engineers Without Borders Society, which is great if you're interested in engineering, international development, technology or if you just want to try something new! We also have a variety of volunteering projects, including a fantastic STEM project where you can become a Science Engineering Ambassador. This role involves visiting local Schools to encourage young people to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths activities. It is a rewarding experience and will be great if you are interested in a future with science, engineering and teaching.
