Civil Engineering FacilitiesCivil Engineering Facilities
The University has an exceptional range of Civil Engineering: Facilities laboratories with a wide range of analytical instrumentation. On-campus laboratories include: heavy structures; geotechnics and materials; climate controlled bi-axial material testing; environmental engineering including microbiology and pilot-scale laboratories; driving simulator; hydraulics and hydrology.
We also have facilities based in the city and across the north of England that allow us to study full scale, real world science and engineering as it happens.

Northern Orthopaedic Retrievals Service (NORS)Northern Orthopaedic Retrievals Service (NORS)
Northern Orthopaedic Retrievals Service provides analysis of artificial joints once removed from a patient. A key ability of NORS is to determine the volumetric wear of material from the artificial joint which has entered into a patient’s body.
