In 2019, the University of Surrey invested over £6.5m in new and upgraded facilitates in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (FEPS). This video explores some of the areas that benefited from this investment, including flexible teaching space with multi-functional display and a preparation area for our Unmanned Aircraft System team.
