Our Strategic Vision

We plan to increase the number of academic staff posts by approximately 50% over the next 5 years.

The Engineering Department has embarked on a growth strategy with a plan to increase the number of academic staff posts by approximately 50% over the next 5 years. The Department offers highly-regarded MEng and BEng undergraduate degree programmes in Engineering. Graduates from these programmes are sought after by employers and many students progress on to study for higher degrees following their undergraduate studies.

The Department currently has 4 full-time taught MSc programmes. The majority of the planned growth in student numbers over the coming years will be through refreshing and expanding our portfolio of taught MSc programmes. New degrees are being developed, some jointly with other departments such as the Business School, and the Department will have a strategic focus on attracting significant additional numbers of international students to these programmes. Some limited expansion of our undergraduate student numbers is also planned.

Our research activities are grouped around 3 Research Challenges in Future Energy Systems, Sustainable Infrastructure and Advanced Materials, Electronics and Communications. The Department has established world-class research expertise in these areas and the expansion plan will deliver opportunities for growth in all 3, plus creating additional areas of research activity, moving forward.
