With a strong track record in health research and a major provider of healthcare practitioners to UK and global healthcare industries our academic vision seeks to develop new models of health care delivery, health promotion and technology enabled treatment modalities.
This focus will reduce the burden of avoidable illness, reduce health inequalities and enhance the effectiveness of health and care interventions.
Our academic enterprise in innovative engineering centres on research that advances the fundamental understanding of engineering and applied science to create technological solutions to real world problems and needs.
Through engaging in multi-disciplinary learning and research our undergraduate and postgraduate students develop the creative capabilities that enable them to gain outstanding skills and expertise in engineering design, innovation, management and problem solving.
Importantly, our expertise is leveraged through partnership working with industry and commerce to co-develop and apply our technology, engineering and management know-how.
Many countries across the world face significant challenges in developing sustainable societies. Many countries are riven by war and conflict; energy, food, water and other resources are being rapidly depleted weak governance and economic models have led to corruption and stark inequalities.
The academic theme of Sustainable Societies will support growth in economic, political and relational well-being for current and future generations through innovative research and teaching and knowledge transfer programmes.
