About University of Leeds, Faculty...
The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Leeds is one of the UK’s top engineering and computing faculties. We have an international reputation for teaching and research, achieving exceptionally high scores in the latest UK Government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
One of our constituent schools, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, is now ranked No 1 in the country and overall as a Faculty we are now 7th in the UK for the quality of our research. This means you will be taught and supervised by world-class academics at the cutting edge of their discipline who will challenge, encourage and support you in your studies.
We are one of the largest engineering faculties in the UK. With over 700 engineering and computing postgraduate students from all over the world, our Faculty is a vibrant and friendly place to study. We have five dedicated student support teams who are located close to where you will work and study, ensuring personalised and direct contact.
The range and scope of our activity is extensive. We cover all the major engineering and computing disciplines and, in addition to the traditional core disciplines, we have specific expertise in engineering project management, water and waste engineering, computational fluid dynamics, artificial intelligence, communications and wireless technology, energy management, chemical and pharmaceutical engineering and medical engineering.
Our students have access to all the facilities you would expect from a top-rated UK research school and we are currently investing over £15m in research infrastructure to ensure our facilities remain world class.
All of our courses are delivered by academic staff who are research active and maintain close links with industry, this ensures that our courses are up-to-date and in line with employer needs. Our industrial partners also contribute to some teaching through guest lectures, hosting and supervising projects, as well as funding prizes, sponsorship and part-time employment opportunities.
Not only are our courses excellent for career development, with many graduates taking top positions in industry and government, they are also preparation for those wishing to undertake further in-depth study in the form of a PhD.
