The constituent academic departments in the School of Technology aspire to be internationally top-ranking centres of excellence in the teaching and research of technological subjects.

Mission: "Provide Excellent Teaching and Perform Quality Research"

In pursuit of our vision, the School provides quality education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, so as to produce high-calibre graduates who will play leading roles in their chosen careers; in industry, the professions and academia. Our students will be selected on intellectual merit, regardless of gender, race and disabilities.

We aim to cultivate a well-balanced portfolio of research of the highest quality with a wide range of interests. We will maintain our reputation for world-class research so as to attract the best staff who will, in turn, enhance our international standing. With a clear focus on the advancement of technology, we aim to lead the way both in the creation of wealth and in improving the quality of life, by increasing the efficiency of existing technologies and by optimising the use of our natural resources and, at the same time, preserving our environment.
