About us

School of Engineering

The School of Engineering has academic staff drawn from the disciplines of Aerospace, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, and offers MSc and MRes programmes in areas such as Manufacturing, Lasers,  Product Design, Materials, Aerospace Simulation, Sustainable Civil Engineering ( Maritime and Structural), and Mechanical Systems Engineering. The research of the school is organised into three Centres, and the MSc programmes are each associated with one Centre to ensure that the teaching is supported and developed within the context of leading edge research.

Research overview

The School is made up of two departments: Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering; and Department of Civil Engineering and Industrial Design.

As part of a research-led Russell Group University, the School attracts substantial research funding and has active collaborative contacts with several major industries and universities in the UK and abroad. We invest heavily in our staff, with mentoring, training and resources and continuously aim to help them progress their careers.


The School is a centre of excellence for engineering research and has a well deserved reputation for its experimental and computing facilities. You'll use many of these in the course of your postgraduate programme.

PhD opportunities are available in all of the above areas. MSc (Eng) and MRes projects are often related to one of the many research activities within the School of Engineering and this provides MSc (Eng) and MRes students with valuable experience in novel and exciting research fields.
