The School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh supports world-class excellence in teaching and research. We offer a full range of undergraduate courses in Engineering.
The School was formed in 2002 from the various individual departments to address diverse and complex challenges across the entire field of engineering, at the micro and macroscopic/global scales.
It is one of the largest in the University, comprising over 150 staff and over 350 postgraduate, 140 MSc and 1,400 undergraduate students. The School occupies approximately 10,000 m2 in over ten buildings on the University's King's Buildings site in South Edinburgh.
At the microscopic scale, its research supports the design and deployment of novel nanotechnology and devices for biological monitoring and medical diagnosis; at the macro/global scale, it optimises the security and sustainability of the built environment and develops engineering solutions to issues raised by climate change.
We have a strong set of PhD and research activities within our six Research Institutes, with much collaboration with industry and government both nationally and internationally.
