Academic opportunities in engineering and physics

We are one of the UK’s leading providers of industrially focused engineering, maths and physics education. We have a vibrant and comprehensive portfolio, strong student recruitment and some of the best teaching, learning and research facilities - benefitting from over £24m of infrastructure investment in the past three years.

The department is home to over 2,300 students across our range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. We work in partnership with a number of leading organisations including Rolls-Royce, Tata Steel, Kimberly Clark, JCB and Network Rail. Our vibrant part time provision represents our commitment to collaborative working with industry across a variety of sectors.

Our research is delivered through two internationally renowned interdisciplinary research institutes; the Materials and Engineering Research Institute (MERI) and the Cultural Communication and Computing Research Institute (C3RI). In the REF 2014, 56% of our engineering research submission was rated internationally excellent or world-leading. One of our key strategic aims is to build on this research excellence towards an excellent REF 2021.

Now, as part of our STEM focused investment programme, we are looking to significantly enhance and grow our academic team.
