Work on the extension of the Queen's Building continues as new labs take shape. The extension is part of the Engineering Growth Project and is a £15 million investment into teaching and the student experience.

Take a look inside the new wing of the Queen's Building, where our new labs, student meeting rooms and flexible teaching spaces are taking shape ready for September. The extension is part of a £15 million investment into teaching and the student experience and includes facilities like a fully-modernised Non-Destructive Testing laboratory and Faraday cage.

The new entrance on Woodland Road will make it easier to pop between the Queen's Building and Merchant Venturers Building - great for multidisclipinary working and cups of tea.
