The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences comprises seven academic Schools working across the frontiers of science and engineering in education, research and translating knowledge. Our focus and contribution to society are based on three core themes of the Science Frontiers, Advanced Manufacturing, and Resilience, Energy and Sustainability. Join our international community and share in our remarkable achievements. Birmingham is a truly global university producing world-leading research. We benefit from mutual partnerships with a wide range of international institutions and host a large international community of researchers and students. With over 5,000 international students from more than 150 countries and 31% of our academic staff from overseas, our campus is truly a diverse and global place which attracts the brightest and best international students and staff. Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives. We continue this tradition today and have ambitions for a future that will embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage. In the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, we offer a top-quality educational experience for all of our students. You will join our community long before you actually start studying with us and it is a community you’ll remain part of long after you have graduated. Every day with us is different. You could start your day by learning from staff that is making a real difference to the world, or you might be undertaking an in-depth study to find new solutions to current problems. After that, you may be finding out what casting steel looks like, or navigating and programming robots. Plus, we offer so much more than a degree. Outside of labs, lectures, and tutorials, there are numerous opportunities to get involved: joining in your departmental society, trying a new sport, or even designing and building a race car. By joining us, you'll receive an unparalleled student experience that combines hands-on learning with a chance to do what you really enjoy. Watch our day in the life films to understand how you could shape your time with us, or read our current student profiles to understand why they love studying with us too.
