As advocates of manufacturing, innovation and technology, our senior staff provide policy advice to the UK government and research organisations. We also provide advice to many overseas governments, who have visited us to study how we operate, in order to develop similar initiatives in their own countries. We are a beacon of how universities work with businesses, and as such host many high profile, national and international, visits to show the impact that can be created.
We are passionate about enthusing the next generation of engineers, scientists and technologists, and both staff and students support a programme of public engagement activities which show the breadth of these subjects in a fun and engaging way.
“Academic excellence with industrial relevance has always been at the heart of what we do….it’s what makes us unique”
