The School of Science attracts esteemed experts and researchers from around the world and has strong partnerships with industry and international collaborators.
Working collaboratively – and across disciplines – our researchers apply their skills and expertise to forge future-focused solutions in all aspects of our lives. While we have long been renowned for our technical expertise, today our researchers are also trained in the commercial realities facing different industry sectors. We strive to produce well-rounded experts, scientific collaborators and problem-solvers.
Research is conducted in three key discipline areas:
