RAE Success for Science and Technology
The Faculty of Science and Technology has had 94% of its research outputs categorised as international quality in the 2008 RAE results.
The results give a quality profile which indicates how many outputs were graded as 1* (national) and 2*, 3* and 4* (three grades of international distinction).
The Computing Department had 100% of outputs categorised as international and Allied Health, Lancaster Environment Centre, Physics, Statistics and General Engineering had 95% of outputs recognised as international.
