We're aiming to use our science to make a difference, engineer a better world and to use our knowledge and skills to make a significant contribution to the University’s social responsibility priorities.
Our research impact
When it comes to making a difference to the world, our science and engineering research speaks for itself.
We use our skills and knowledge to make a difference, engineer a Better World and to make a significant contribution to the University’s social responsibility priorities from addressing many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, to efforts to improve social inclusion to our world-leading research in environmental sustainability.
You can find out more about some of our work in our Science and Engineering podcast; The Buzz, or by browsing our collection of blog articles below.
We're addressing some of the key scientific and engineering challenges of our world, in a series of podcasts aimed at those who just want to learn more.
