Engineering building

UWE Bristol are developing a state-of-the-art engineering building with teaching and research facilities such as engine test cells, wind tunnels and dedicated learning spaces to accommodate a wide-range of engineering disciplines such as composite manufacturing, machining and metrology.

More than 1,600 undergraduate and postgraduate students along with 100 academic and technical staff will be based in the building on our Frenchay Campus.

The building, granted consent by South Gloucestershire Council, will contribute to the University's vision of promoting multi-disciplinary, collaborative learning and supports the predicted increase in demand for skilled engineering graduates across the region.

“We want to make UWE Bristol one of the top schools of engineering in the country. The building will help attract a diverse, creative and innovative student body to the engineering profession, address the future skills gap in the region and respond to the emerging demand for engineering Degree Apprenticeships.”
