Our academics conduct boundary-breaking research which improves lives across the world. We, as department, aim to develop a vibrant research community, environment and culture for our team.
In 2021 we created ten Research Nodes alongside our Research Challenges, enhancing the flow of communication and collegiality. We are aiming to grow, and are looking to recruit and welcome global talent: join our diverse team or collaborate with us.
will continue to act as the fundamental ethos in the Department. The Research Challenges enable the Department to align our research activity with the key global challenges represented in both the UK Industrial Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals agenda. In addition, collaboration with colleagues across the wider university and the Research Institutes, is a key facilitator for our research, as well as collaboration with leading academic and industrialists in the UK and worldwide. The overall research strategy in the Department of Engineering includes a desire to diversify the research funding sources by increasing the industrial engagement with our research activity.
The Department strategy aligns with the overall University strategy of Quality rather than Quantity, reflecting the world class research across the breadth of the institution.
