The School of Engineering and Materials Science has vibrant and successful research community with strengths in the following core areas represented by the five divisions. The school also has a thriving Joint Research Institute with Northwestern Polytechnical University in China:
QMUL's General Engineering research publications were ranked 4th in the UK in the 2014 REF. Our research continues to be published in the highest quality journals.
We have a long track record of worldwide research impact. Examples include the widely-used lightweight self-reinforced plastic (Tegris®) and innovative new biomaterials now treating 100,000s of patients across the globe.
Our research grant funding in engineering and materials science has increased substantially over recent years and includes prestigious EPSRC and ERC fellowships.
The school provides a multidisciplinary internationally-leading research environment linked to industrial and academic partners and QMUL's Institute of Bioengineering and the Materials Research Institute
