Welcome to our diverse and innovative Faculty

We are an enterprising and dynamic Faculty who ensure our 4085 students and 265 staff excel within their chosen discipline, no matter how diverse; from computing and engineering to maritime studies, built environment and product design to mathematics.

Thanks to our wide range of courses, all of which are designed to meet market needs, 80% of our undergraduates are in employment or further study six months after graduating, whilst, with support from our leading academics and industry professionals, over 85% of our postgraduate students complete their PhD. All students also benefit from our links with employers, our course accreditation and our commitment to supporting women in STEM.

As a Faculty we are very proud of our varied research landscape. From microwave technologies to maritime logistics, our teams of researchers have achieved excellence in their fields, producing high-quality, high-impact work; work that not only has commercial application, but also has a  positive impact on both economic and social wellbeing.

Our research

The Faculty of Technology and Environment has five first-rate research institutes and centres. Our research themes are diverse and within each of our key areas we have developed a global reputation for excellence. The latest research assessment (REF2014) has further enhanced our reputation. Nearly all of the outputs have good evidence of world-leading research performance, whilst a large proportion of outputs were internationally excellent or internationally recognised in terms of originality, significance and rigour.

In the future, we will continue to strengthen our research centres and institutes by investing in state-of-the-art facilities in Engineering, Maritime, Computer Science, Mathematics and the Built Environment.
