Partnerships in the School of Engineering

It is the strength of our partnerships and relationships that allows us to achieve what we do. Our flexibility of approach makes us the first choice for many local organisations and businesses.

Partnerships with some of the top organisations and businesses in the industry mean our courses stay relevant to the current market as well as the latest technologies and influences.
