From summer 2022 the School became the School of Science & Technology (having previously been known as the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering). As part of these changes, the three separate Engineering departments - Civil, Electrical and Electronic, and Mechanical and Aeronautical - were merged into a single department, enabling us to offer a more diverse range of Engineering degrees.
The School holds a Bronze Athena Swan award in recognition of its commitment to progress gender equality.
With a proud history of educating students for more than 120 years, today the School is home to over 1,900 undergraduate students, 600 postgraduate taught students, 300 research students, 40 research staff, 115 academic staff and 60 professional support staff.
