Leading-edge research is the core of what we do at the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. From atoms to astronomy, computers to cars and robots to robust materials, our goal is to transform our understanding of the world to make life easier, healthier and more sustainable.
Modern-day living is possible only because of inventive designs and revolutionary discoveries made by engineers and physical scientists. How we will live in the future is being shaped now by researchers in Birmingham. Our research is trail-blazing in three key areas: Advanced Manufacturing, Resilience, energy and sustainability, and Science Frontiers.
