The School of Engineering’s mission is to foster outstanding learning and scholarship, fulfilling the aspirations of global humanity through our research.

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework review (REF2014), the School’s submission (with engineers at Heriot-Watt University) was ranked No. 1 in UK Engineering, having achieved the highest Research Power of any UK engineering submission to any REF panel.

Our 125 academic staff, in five teaching Disciplines, guide the learning of over 1700 students. Those staff also work in our seven Research Institutes, with 400 research students and 110 full-time research staff, to provide breadth and depth in world-leading engineering. All of this work is underpinned by the expertise of more than 90 professional services staff. The School has a strong track record in producing more than 50 technology spin-outs and developing industry links that enable our graduates to build career-long relationships.
