Organization profile

Profile Information

Engineering and Technology has a vibrant and rapidly growing research community with expertise in such diverse areas as precision engineering, intelligent interfaces, systems engineering, and diagnostics. Our research environment is lively and collaborative, and well stocked with cutting edge equipment. Our Centre for Precision Technologies is widely regarded as the best research facility of its type in the UK and one of the top three in Europe.

In recent years we have invested in significant new infrastructure incuding a Nanolab, CT facililities, high performance computing (in collaboration with the Science and Technology Facilities Council), FIB and TEM instrumentation, as well as laboratories for optics and diagnostics.
