Faculty of Engineering

Our faculty

The Faculty of Engineering has more than 3,900 students: 2,900 at undergraduate level, 430 in taught postgraduate programmes and over 500 research postgraduate students.

Research is  a key activity at the faculty, with large scale research activities and collaborations with other institutions and members of the industry. Much of the work undertaken is of a world-class level, while in many areas, the research programmes, and academics and students involved, are clearly leading the world in their discoveries and developments.

Student life is vibrant within the faculty. The Engineering Atrium, which includes an oval-shaped 250-seat lecture theatre, four new computer laboratories and a café, is the hub for student activities. The atrium and its surroundings provide a relaxed environment for students that can be used for both study and socialising.

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