We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The University of Nottingham has an international reputation as a world-leading research and award winning teaching institution and was ranked third in the UK for engineering research power in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
It has a beautiful campus in parkland close to Nottingham, the cultural and shopping capital of the East Midlands, and a vibrant community from more than 140 countries.
Our Engineering and Science Graduate Centre provides friendship, support, training and careers advice for all postgraduates. It also provides training for work placements and interviews.
The department was ranked 10th in the UK by QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016 and our close industrial links with high-quality companies guarantee that our teaching is relevant and meaningful, with strengths in composite materials, energy and aerospace.
Our extensive facilities include a range of materials-testing and characterisation techniques, including an electron microscope suite, networked computers supporting computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided engineering (CAE) using industry-standard software packages, a full range of wind tunnels including a climatic tunnel, aeroengine test rigs and associated equipment, fully automated 3D and 2D laser Doppler Anemometers and particle image velocimeters, a water jet cutting machine, high precision scales and a welding system.
We have the largest additive manufacturing research group in the world, which hosts the ESPR Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Additive Manufacturing. The centre investigates new processes in 3D printing, such as complex multi-material products with electronic components.
The department also hosts the Institute for Aerospace Technology, at our purpose-built Aerospace Technology Centre, and the Marie Curie Innovative Doctoral Programme focused on delivering tomorrow’s air transport.
