Research

Our ambition is to be globally renowned for the excellence and breadth of our research and scholarship, and to apply our knowledge and expertise to global societal challenges (e.g. Health and life, Transportation and Autonomy, Creativity, Sustainability, Energy and power, Resilience), striving to make a positive impact.

We see co-creation and collaboration as critical to successful research and innovation; working in partnership with other academic disciplines, government, third sector, spin outs, SMEs, multinationals.

The Faculty has created an inspiring, collaborative and highly dynamic research environment for all of our staff and students, including access to world-class facilities – the BLADE laboratory, the National Composites Centre, the earthquake shaking table, the Smart Internet Lab, the Quantum Engineering Technology Lab, the Bristol Vision Institute, the Bristol VR Lab and the Bristol Robotics Laboratory. Our ambitions are set to soar with the announcement of a new £300m Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus. This Campus gives us new opportunities to work with (and benefit) the city, create jobs and celebrate Bristol's unique culture.
