Enabling works on the site of UWE Bristol’s new multi-million pound engineering building have begun.
Starting on 13th August, the works will prepare the site ready for construction to begin in the autumn. The building is due to open in summer 2020.
More than 1,600 undergraduate and post graduate students, along with 100 academic and technical staff, will be based in the 8,500 m2 building which will:
- Attract and inspire the engineers of the future;
- Deliver a practice-based curriculum that will produce ready and able graduates equipped with the right industry skills, experience and knowledge;
- Attract a diverse, creative and innovative student body to engineering as a profession and help address the future skills gaps in the region.
Modern teaching and research facilities and dedicated learning spaces will accommodate a wide range of engineering disciplines such as composite manufacturing, machining and metrology.
