Welcome to the Department of Engineering

Our aim in the Department of Engineering is to give the best education possible, providing an encouraging, supportive and intellectually challenging environment where students can develop their skills and enhance their employability. Students are exposed to, and actively involved in, some of the cutting-edge research that goes on in the department.

Parents and others accompanying the applicants will be welcome to attend the talks in lecture theatre E005, but space limitations mean we restrict the laboratory exercise and tour with our students to the applicants themselves. We will offer parents a meeting with members of our academic staff while the applicants are doing the laboratory exercise, and you might take this opportunity to ask questions. Refreshments will also be available in the coffee bar in main atrium of the Higginson Building. The applicants will be brought to the coffee bar in the Higginson Building at the end of the programme.

More information can be found in the Post-offer Visit Day Guide.
