Engineers are at the forefront of innovation, contributing to the transition to a lower carbon future; next-generation materials and processes; devices for medical diagnosis; data-driven innovation, robotics and AI systems; and making infrastructure and the environment safer and healthier.
Our School is a thriving, international community of staff and students addressing the world’s critical challenges across all disciplines of engineering. We’re a leading centre for innovation and our research is carried out under a wide variety of engineering themes in seven institutes:
- Digital Communications
- Energy Systems
- Infrastructure and Environment
- Integrated Micro and Nano Systems
- Materials and Processes
- Multiscale Thermofluids
As a postgraduate student, you will have the opportunity to engage in world-leading research through our active academic groups. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), our joint submission with Heriot-Watt University, was ranked 1st in Scotland and 3rd in the UK, based on the quality and breadth of our combined research by Times Higher Education*. Furthermore, 96% of our research activity was ranked world-leading and internationally excellent.
*Joint submission rankings are calculated by combining the individual institutions’ results in the same unit of assessment
