Our culture

We are a small and close-knit school who strive to create an inclusive environment for all. We strive towards sustainability in our research and activities on campus. 

Diversity and Inclusion

The School of Materials Science and Engineering aims to provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all students regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification.


Sustainability is at the core of our philosophy and our researchers are developing the technologies to revolutionise energy use and usher in the circular economy.

Women in Materials Science & Engineering

It's easy to think of science and engineering as being "male" professions, but that is a thing of the past! There are now many women studying science and engineering and applying their professional skills across a wide range of industries.
