Inside STEMLab

With 3,500m2 of modern, energy efficient, co-located science and engineering teaching laboratories STEMLab has been designed to develop the next generation of highly employable STEM graduates.

STEMLab is a £17 million investment in new state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, and part of a wider £25 million investment in the West Park of our campus which includes an adjacent student learning and teaching hub. Recently opened in September 2017, it contains new engineering, physics, chemistry, materials and bio laboratories forming a truly cutting-edge learning facility.

Students joining us in 2017 will be the first cohort to benefit from these outstanding new facilities.  It allows us to offer new ways to learn and collaborate, for example a ‘drop-in’ engineering workshop, alongside teaching laboratories, workshops, computer-aided design and rapid prototyping facilities, a design studio and informal learning spaces.

These enhanced facilities will further increase our ability to train and develop skilled graduates that are targeted by major employers from across the world.
