STEMLab is a £17 million investment in new state-of-the-art facilities and part of a wider £25 million investment in the west side of our campus. Having opened in 2017, STEMLab contains new engineering, physics, chemistry and bio laboratories for our students.
It allows us to offer new facilities previously unavailable to our students, for example a ‘drop-in’ engineering workshop, alongside a range of modern laboratories and teaching spaces. These enhanced facilities benefit our current students and allow us to expand our teaching provision in STEM subjects broadening the vital role we play in supplying skilled graduates to industry in the future.
Who uses STEMLab?
STEMLab is predominantly a student focused learning environment. It has been designed to offer new ways to learn and collaborate, but will mainly be used by the following academic schools and departments within the University:
- Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Sports, Exercise and Health Sciences
