We are passionate about education and helping to develop the next generation of engineering professionals. We combine cutting-edge research, industrial links and excellent facilities to deliver industry-accredited undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.
There's a good chance you'll find the products of our research in your wallets and bags - the magnetic ink printed on the back of train and event tickets was developed here in Hull. This is just one example of the real world applications that stem from our vibrant, inclusive department.
Hull has an excellent reputation for teaching engineering. We were ranked third in the UK for overall student satisfaction in Mechanical Engineering in the National Student Survey 2020. The department has invested in state-of-the-art facilities such as the FabLab and Robotics Lab to enhance its teaching and learning experience.
Our strong focus on industry is directly channelled into the high-quality teaching and practical experience we deliver for our students. As a result, our students graduate as trained engineers who are ready to work in industries ranging from foods to pharmaceuticals – and are prepared for careers in sectors such as research, education and management.
Ideally positioned at the heart of the UK’s burgeoning ‘Energy Estuary’, we have links with major engineering employers in the region. These relationships inform our teaching and provide opportunities for our students.
Based within the Faculty of Science and Engineering, our academics collaborate with colleagues across the university and industry.
We have a track record of delivering high-quality research that tackles real-world problems. With particular expertise in the field of renewable energy and energy storage; biomedical engineering and advanced materials and acoustics.
