The integrated School of Engineering was formed in 2002 from the various individual departments to address diverse and complex challenges across the entire field of engineering, at the micro and macroscopic/global scales. At the microscopic scale, its research supports the design and deployment of novel nanotechnology and devices for biological monitoring and medical diagnosis; at the macro/global scale, it optimises the security and sustainability of the built environment and develops engineering solutions to issues raised by climate change.
The School is one of the largest in the University, comprising over 150 staff and over 350 postgraduate, 140 MSc and 1,400 undergraduate students. The School occupies approximately 10,000 m2 in over ten buildings on the University's King's Buildings site in South Edinburgh.
Each member of academic staff teaches in one of five engineering disciplines and is a member of a Research Institute:
Engineering Research Institutes
- Bioengineering (IBioE)
- Digital Communications (IDCoM)
- Energy Systems (IES)
- Infrastructure and Environment (IIE)
- Integrated Micro and Nano Systems (IMNS)
- Materials and Processes (IMP)
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Electronics and Electrical Engineering
- Engineering Mathematics
- Mechanical Engineering
