Academic Vision and School Planning

In pursuit of our Vision, the School aims to cultivate a well-balanced portfolio of research of the highest quality with a wide range of interests. It is important that the School continues to add value to Departmental activities without seeking to dictate or constrain bottom-up and Departmental initiatives

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 the School will be well placed to be able to play a strong part in the financial recovery of the University.

The School and its Departments ensure innovations from research and education are shared through the transfer of advances to industry and third-sector organisations. We aim for the School to be the first point of call for companies and organisations around the world that desire to address significant challenges that need technological, innovation, entrepreneurship, or management solutions.
