Major Expansion Underway for Engineering at Lancaster
Lancaster University has announced a significant investment to build on its strengths in Engineering with the creation of twelve 'new blood' full-time appointments.
In addition to strengthening current areas of international standing in mechanical, electrical and electronic, manufacturing, mechatronic, materials and control engineering, strategic growth is planned in chemical engineering, with four of the new appointments to concentrate on this area.
Lancaster's Engineering Department, recently ranked fifth in the UK for Mechanical Engineering in the Guardian University Guide, leads the Faculty's strategic focus Energy Lancaster, and also hosts a number of strategic research activities in clean combustion, marine renewable energy, microelectronics and nanotechnology, nuclear engineering and particle accelerator engineering.
Head of Engineering, Professor Malcolm Joyce, said: "These are truly exciting times for Engineering and especially at Lancaster University. This investment provides a fantastic opportunity for Engineering at Lancaster, and will almost double the department's scale."
