The School of Engineering and Digital Arts has an excellent reputation recognised for both the quality of our teaching and impact of our research.
Located in its own building, we are small enough to get to know all our students as individuals and staff and students work in a very friendly environment. The School enjoys an international reputation for its work and prides itself in allowing students the freedom to realise their maximum potential.
The School was established over 50 years ago and has developed a top-quality teaching and research base, receiving excellent ratings in both research and teaching assessments. Engaged in high-quality research in Communications, Intelligent Interactions and Instrumentation and Control, with significant national and international impact, we have been consistently attracting substantial research funding from the UK Research Councils, European research programmes, industrial and commercial companies, government agencies and others and our spread of expertise allows us to respond rapidly to new developments. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), 98% of our research was judged to be of international quality.
We prepare our students for a wide range of occupations enabling them to pursue dynamic professional careers in the UK and overseas.
Our 33 academic staff and over 130 postgraduate students and research staff form teams providing an ideal focus to effectively support a high level of research activity. There is a thriving student population studying for postgraduate degrees in a notably friendly and supportive teaching and research environment.
