We are a large multidisciplinary Faculty with strong research capacities across the subject range, and a significant number of research centres and units. We have strong links with policy makers, commercial partners and the third-sector. We offer consultancy advice, research & development capabilities, applied research and knowledge-transfer partnerships. We receive national recognition for our work in information security, mobile applications and services, and power and automotive systems engineering.
The Faculty is host to over 120 full-time academic staff and a community of more than 150 research students. Over 80% of our research submitted in the last government research assessment exercise was judged to be of an international standard, with 5% of the Faculty’s submission being recognised as world-leading.
The Faculty has excellent industrial links, working with Fujitsu, IBM, British Telecom, Orange, Welsh Assembly Government, Network Rail, Ordnance Survey and ESRI. We have a proud tradition of collaboration with the commercial sector through projects supporting technology transfer and applied research work. The Faculty has state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, the result of a recent multimillion pound investment programme.
The Project Shop forges links with community organisations based in south Wales and invites requests for research and development projects. The team matches final-year undergraduate or masters students with project topics and provides support during the project period.
