Welcome to our School. We bring physicists and engineers together to push the frontiers of knowledge, foster innovation and meet the grand challenges facing society.
Our aim is to develop new technologies that work for the public good, in an environment where everyone can thrive.
Research and innovation
We apply expertise in fundamental physics and engineering to drive innovation in science and technology.
Our well-established industry links translate our research into solutions to real-world problems. Our doors are open to new collaborations.
Public and schools outreach
We offer a wide range of activities for the public, families and school students of all ages.
Explore the mysteries of the universe at our observatory, the Astrocampus. Delve into nuclear physics using Lego. Take part in hands-on engineering workshops, and much more.
Culture of inclusion
We're proud of our Juno Champion Award and Athena Swan Awards demonstrating our strong commitment to equality and diversity.
Our facilities include specialist laboratories in York Plasma Institute, the Institute for Safe Autonomy and York JEOL Nanocentre.
