Welcome from the Head of Department
On behalf of the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering I am delighted to welcome you as a new student. The department is a community of scholars working across more than a dozen subject areas, and we are sure you will benefit from the breadth and vitality that is possible in a department of this size, with world-class teaching and in-depth specialist expertise available to you.
Your Welcome Pack will help you in your first few days at the University. It contains important information about the schedule for Welcome Week, and also tells you how to contact the Student Support Centre if you have any questions. There is a lot of additional information on our website. Please do not worry if it seems a lot to take in. We will work hard during Welcome Week and in the first semester to make your transition to undergraduate study as smooth as possible.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to the school in person in September.
Professor Rob Poole
