The School aims to tackle some of society's greatest challenges, with engineering applied to many important humanitarian and environmental concerns - including climate change.
We place great importance on making a difference to the social and economic wellbeing of our communities - as shown by our Athena SWAN Bronze Award and the impact of our research.
The social responsibility practices of the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering are evidenced in the following ways:
