Research at the Faculty of Engineering and Science (ENGINEERING) is wide-ranging, spanning from basic to application-oriented research that can solve the major global societal challenges. Areas include: converting to green energy, ensuring clean water for the world's population, and smart and innovative methods of production. Research at the faculty is conducted by six departments, each within their core area as well as collaboratively across areas and with other national and international research institutions in order to achieve the best results.
The departments are:
- The Built Environment (BUILD)
- Materials and Production
- Chemistry and Bioscience
- Mathematical Sciences
- Energy Technology
One of our major strengths is that we conduct research in collaboration with industry, and it is essential to us that the knowledge generated by our research is shared with our surroundings so as to help solve societal global challenges.
We are regularly bringing in prestigious external research funding thus helping to ensure that we continue to have an excellent research environment, which also is the source of our professional growth.
