To deliver the very best engineering education, we will create an interactive learning and teaching environment that has the student cohort actively at its heart. Each of our three main teaching floors on levels 3, 4 and 5 will be reconfigured over three summers, starting in 2019. 

We will continue to value fundamental disciplinary knowledge, and to foster a culture of professional identity, creativity, enterprise, community and leadership.
