New building and facilities for the School Of Engineering

The University has begun work on a new School of Engineering building, due for completion in the 2020/21 academic year. It will bring together many engineering disciplines into one state-of-the-art building.

The University of Birmingham is committed to providing the best academic buildings for the benefit of students, staff and researchers in the School of Engineering. The new building will provide different and more flexible ways of working that will use the space to its best advantage. 

The new School of Engineering will sit 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), 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.
