The School of Physics, Engineering and Technology was officially created on 1 August 2022. It is one of the University’s transformation projects and as such creating a new home for the school is a priority.
New buildings and new facilities and space will support the School’s ambitious plans in teaching, research and translational activities with industry and local enterprises.
We will create:
- A purpose-built space to support translating discovery research into technological applications with a combined digital and physical infrastructure.
- Facilities and an environment to help forge new collaborations and partnerships.
- New shared collaborative student spaces and working environments alongside state-of-the-art laboratory and research facilities
- A deeper collaboration, and enable better integration of research, teaching and technical support activities in the physical sciences.
The project is in the early stages and will take a number of years to deliver. The first stage of the project is to create some additional heavy lab space in the Church Lane annex. The planning for this is currently underway.
