£5m funding towards 4ES construction

The University has successfully bid for a £5m grant towards the construction of our new 4ES building.

The Government has confirmed that we are one of 73 universities and colleges who will receive a share of £200 million funding for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teaching capital projects during 2015-16.

The scheme is intended to ensure that higher education responds effectively to the increase in demand for STEM studies by developing facilities that will support an increased flow of highly employable graduates into industry.

The University’s bid centred on the project to expand and upgrade the Faculty of Engineering and Design’s teaching facilities through the construction of a new academic building on campus.

Work has already started on the new building located to the south of 4 East and 8 East, facing out onto the University Park. It is due to open in 2016.
