Faculty of Engineering

Our faculty

The Faculty of Engineering strives to constantly achieve the amazing in an ever-evolving technological landscape. Our excellent reputation is reflected in the success of our staff, students and alumni.


Research is one of our faculty's major strengths – here, we partake in interdisciplinary projects and boast notable collaborations with public and private organisations, research institutions, and industry. Much of our work is at a world-class level, and in many research programmes, our researchers are leading the world in their discoveries and developments. The availability of this expertise plays a huge part in the ever-evolving content of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. This is one of the steps we take to make sure that are graduates are equipped with the right knowledge to take on their career of choice.

We also believe that life for students extends beyond the classroom. The Engineering Atrium, a well-recognised area in our Central Campus, surrounds a 250-seat oval-shaped lecture theatre, a 'neon foyer' which houses many networking events, four computer laboratories, and seating areas and beanbags. This is the hub for many student activities, thanks to its relaxed environment that can be used for both study, socialising, and activities hosted by our University and faculty clubs and associations.

Our illustrious alumni include: former University of Oxford Vice-Chancellor, Dr John Hood; the most successful yachtsman in America's Cup history, Russell Coutts; Oscar winner Mark Sagar; Chris Liddell, previously Chief Financial Officer of both Microsoft and General Motors, and many more.
