Investing in Engineering and Digital Innovation at the University of Central Lancashire

Building on our multi-million campus Masterplan development and our new £30 million+ Engineering Innovation Centre, the University now wishes to attract top talent to lead our ever-increasing academic portfolio. We are seeking to appoint a new Executive Dean of Engineering and Digital Technology and a Head of School of Physical Sciences and Computing.

These appointments, working together with a newly appointed Pro Vice-Chancellor in Digital and Creative Industries, will strengthen this important area of our academic provision. They will provide the infrastructure to support the growth of our reputation and impact locally, regionally and internationally, and help us to realise our ambitious plans for engineering, digital, and the creative industries.
