School of Engineering and Digital Arts

Research in the School

The School is engaged in high-quality research with significant national and international impact while offering excellent opportunities for graduate studies. Our research is organised into three groups:

We have been consistently attracting substantial research funding from the UK Research Councils, European research programmes, industrial and commercial companies, government agencies and others and our spread of expertise allows us to respond rapidly to new developments.

We have a thriving student population studying for postgraduate degrees in a notably friendly and supportive learning environment within a successful research culture. The skills, abilities and enthusiasm of our students are vital elements in our research activities and we foster them as effectively as we can through the provision of excellent research training during their graduate studies..

The recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) assessed the impact of our research outside of academia.  Take a look at these case studies, which illustrate the breadth of our School's research and impact on society.
