Engineering and Physical Sciences
Our Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences is one of the largest in the UK and brings together nine highly rated Schools, each with a powerful reputation for teaching and research success. Spanning the broad areas of our expertise, these nine Schools promote a collaborative approach that continues to raise our high teaching and learning profiles.
Across our nine Schools, the Faculty has more than 9,000 students and nearly 2,000 staff. Students come to study with us from across the world and we welcome just over 3,000 international students to the Faculty every year providing a diverse and exciting mix of cultures within our leading degree programmes.
All of our Schools were ranked internationally or nationally excellent in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise - testament to the focus on research that runs through the very core of our Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
With over 1000 academic professionals and post-doctoral research staff, the breadth, volume and quality of our research is world-leading. Many of our staff are at the forefront of research and discovery, as evidenced by the recent award of the 2010 Nobel Prize for Physics to Professors Andre Geim and Kostantin Novoselov for their discovery of Graphene, which has now become the basis of a wide range of further interdisciplinary research and development around potential applications in materials, chemistry, physics and engineering.
Within the Faculty, we have over 70 specialist research centres and groups, performing research in fields such as:
- Photon science and photonic materials
- The structure of the universe
- Nuclear science and technology
- Advanced materials
- Imaging and visualisation
- Global and local environment studies
- Computing and digital science and technology
- Aeronautical engineering
- Biotechnology, bioscience and biomedical engineering
performing many of our research activities in national and international collaborations. Often in partnership with colleagues within our faculties of Humanities, Life Sciences, and Medical and Human Sciences, we work on an international platform with other major universities and industry partners such as CERN.
