Our mission is to conduct quality research and knowledge transfer in response to practical demands in defence, healthcare, manufacturing, marine and service industries. We have been supported by grants from the EPSRC, the MRC, the Royal Society, EU, MOD, UK charities and industries.

Research, knowledge transfer and consultancy also impact on teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, so that our taught courses remain relevant to ever increasing technological advances and meet the demands of UK industries.

The School of Engineering has 70 members of academic staff, and 50 PhD students.
