Facilities

Brand new laboratory complex opening in 2014

At the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering we have always had some great facilities for students, including a full range of laboratories and workshops. But things are about to get even better.

We are in the process of creating a whole new set of facilities, all designed by specialist laboratory architects in very close collaboration with the School. These new laboratories will provide excellent, flexible facilities in all our major research areas. There will also be a dedicated undergraduate teaching laboratory, with brand new equipment for our students to get their hands dirty!

The countdown is on to the grand opening in late 2014.

To locate the temporary homes of some of our popular facilities, please check out our laboratory contacts.
