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.
