About us

Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (FEPS). We have an outstanding reputation for excellence in research and teaching, a strong enterprise culture and an excellent record of graduate employment.

Our academics are well respected, both nationally and internationally, throughout academia and industry where our links are strong. We believe that a university should contribute to the cultural wealth of society by developing the mainstay sciences, while enhancing the technology to improve the overall quality of life.

Through consistent investment stemming from our deep commitment to develop world-class, sustainable research programmes, the Faculty has built up an impressive infrastructure to support all its activities. The interdisciplinary nature of much of our work also encourages us to constantly explore new opportunities to cross boundaries, providing students with the prospect of accessing facilities which are truly world class.
