Faculty of Science and Engineering


With over 500 academic staff and a similar number of post-doctoral research staff, the breadth and volume of our research is unsurpassed.

The research we do is also world-leading in terms of quality, as shown by the results of the UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2014, and by the award of the 2010 Nobel Prize for physics to two of our professors, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov.

There are more than 70 specialist research centres and groups in the Faculty, undertaking research in fields such as photon science, electrical energy distribution systems, neural-inspired computing architectures, the structure of the universe, nuclear science and technology, tissue engineering, alternative energy sources, global and local environment studies, lightweight materials for 21st -century fuel-efficient vehicles, medical imaging, aeronautical engineering, and nano-materials.

Within the University of Manchester, we enjoy strong collaboration with colleagues in the other three faculties: Humanities, Life Sciences, and Medical and Human Sciences. Many research activities in EPS are carried out in national and international collaborations.
