Work is set to begin on a new a state-of-the-art engineering building at UWE Bristol, with teaching and research facilities including engine test cells, wind tunnels and dedicated learning spaces. The building will accommodate a wide-range of engineering disciplines such as composite manufacturing, machining and metrology.
UWE Bristol is responding to the regional shortage of engineers by delivering a practice-based curriculum that will produce graduates equipped with the right industry skills, experience and knowledge. The new building will enable the faculty to respond to the emerging demand for Degree Apprenticeships in Engineering, accommodating 1,600 undergraduate and postgraduate students alongside 100 academic and technical staff.
Find out more, including visuals of the plans for the building, here and take a virtual tour of the building, which is scheduled to open to staff and students in summer 2020.
