Teaching the next generation of engineers at the School of Engineering
The University completed work on the new School of Engineering building in February 2021. It brings together many engineering disciplines into one state-of-the-art building.
Passionate about educating the next generation of engineers, the University of Birmingham is committed to providing the best academic and teaching facilities for our staff, students and researchers. As well as enabling collaboration with our industry partners, encouraging different and more flexible ways of working in the School of Engineering, that will use the space to its best advantage.
The new School of Engineering sits alongside a world-class centre of excellence in rail in partnership with industry, focusing on digital systems. Funded as part of the newly-created UK Railway Research and Innovation Network (UKRRIN) which opened in November 2020. It will focus on railway control and simulation, data integration and cybersecurity, condition monitoring and sensing, and improved methods for technology introduction. This builds on existing strength in rail research.
Take a virtual tour of our research labs
We strongly encourage you to visit the University and the Department. The University organises a number of open days every year when all Departments are open and there are various activities around the campus. (In person visits will resume once lockdown restrictions are lifted and it is safe to visit).
Applicants to whom we wish to make offers are invited for a Offer Holder Visit Day (from January to March). Please contact the Admissions Tutor if you wish to visit at other times.
