We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Engineering Department specialises in multidisciplinary engineering research, particularly in the areas of energy, nuclear engineering and microsystems, and has close links with many industries.
The Department has expanded substantially since 2001 with subsequent research valued in excess of £6.5m. Support of students and research is obtained from a wide range of sources including Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), European Union (EU), Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), Technology Strategy Board (TSB), Charitable Foundations, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) and industry. The Department continues to grow significantly with the construction of a new building, due to begin in 2013. This will provide students with access to modern teaching and lab spaces.
According to the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 100% of the research outputs from Engineering have been judged to be internationally recognised. The Department is home to a number of dedicated research centres including the Lloyds’ Register Educational Trust Centre for Nuclear Engineering and Decommissioning, the Centre for Microsystems Engineering and the Lancaster Product Development Unit. Engineering also coordinates the cross-disciplinary research activity in energy, via Energy Lancaster, is a founder member of the Cockcroft Institute for Particle Accelerator Engineering and is host to the EPSRC Nuclear EngD Programme and Sir John Fisher Foundation MSc by research scholarship scheme.
Industry values this excellence and the Department is one of the top rated in the country for graduate employment success.
