Investing in Engineering
We’re always working to ensure that our Faculty is at the cutting edge of teaching and research. Since September 2017 we’ve opened a multitude of new spaces to support hands-on teaching, learning and research. The £22 million+ investment includes a major new extension and refit. It provides state-of-the-art spaces and equipment as well as creating new places for students to socialise and study.
Flexible teaching spaces
A large flexible space to support active learning, seminars, design classes and group-working sessions. Can be used as one large space or divided up. The space is also used for conferences, open days and outreach.
Open-plan Engineering lab
A new flexible open-plan Engineering teaching laboratory for up to 200 in one group or multiple simultaneous classes and workshops. Increasing hands-on teaching and learning opportunities.
