Engineering at the University of Bristol advances knowledge and technological innovations to address global challenges.

Our internationally recognised research has led the way - from Spitfire wing design in the 1930s to the first mobile phone in the late 1970s. Today's pioneering projects include developing earthquake-proof schools in Nepal, a 21st century home health sensor system, driverless cars and 5G superfast internet.

Our interdisciplinary culture and partnerships with leading universities and industry add value to the national and global economy.

Our culture of enterprise nurtures graduates who are well equipped to succeed in their chosen careers. I am privileged to have the opportunity to work with some of the world's most talented students and staff and be the Dean of a successful faculty.

Professor Andrew Nix, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering
