We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Our School is a hotbed of innovation. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), 94 per cent of our research activity was rated world-leading or internationally excellent. We have a strong track record of producing technology spin outs and we develop industry links to help you build relationships that will last your whole career.
We have six specialist research institutes; Bioengineering, Digital Communications, Energy Systems, Infrastructure and Environment, Integrated Micro and Nano Systems and Materials and Processes.
We have computing facilities unique to the UK, including the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC), a leading European centre for research, and the silicon fabrication capabilities of the Scottish Microelectronics Centre (SMC), which also has extensive ‘class 10’ cleanrooms, and provides rare access to tools for processing 200mm silicon wafers. The SMC has strong links with industry and spin-out activity, generating annual turnover of more than £1 million.
