The Faculty brings together research in the engineering, agriculture and biological sciences as well as the physical sciences. This diversity is exceptional and ensures we are at the forefront of innovative thinking in research.
External assessment (RAE2008) of our research confirmed that the Faculty is world-leading and internationally excellent. We are in the UK top 2 for Civil Engineering and in the top 10 for Agriculture and for Engineering as a whole which includes Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Electronic and Mechanical Engineering (including Marine Technology). In addition, we are in the UK top 20 for Statistics, Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences, Computer Science and Informatics, and Applied Mathematics.
We are increasingly making an international impact in areas of multidisciplinary research. Recent examples of this are demonstrated by the award of a £12m EPSRC Hub in Digital Economy, and the £20m EPSRC Industrial Doctorate Centre in Biopharmaceutical Process Development.
We have made significant investment in new research facilities, in particular electronics, thermal energy, chemistry, agriculture, earth systems, and marine technology.
