Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science strives to be a place where everybody's differences are valued. We recognise the strengths that differences bring to a collective group, and will always support our staff and students so that they are able to succeed. 

The School is committed to fulfilling its obligations under the Equality Act 2010. This refers to everybody being equal in relation to age, gender, gender reassignment, disability, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religious belief & non-belief, sex and sexual orientation. 

The School has held a Bronze Award since 2015.
