School of Science and Technology


The School of Science and Technology offers a range of courses and research opportunities addressing key technology, scientific and environmental issues highly relevant in today’s world.


A combination of pure and applied research is at the core of our teaching. The School’s three departments of Computing, Engineering and Environmental and Geographical Sciences, plus the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies (ICLT) bring together the latest ideas and techniques from their own cutting-edge research. This informs course development and positions the School as a key provider of knowledge transfer for public and private organisations on both a national and international basis.


The School boasts a number of research centres and groups, including the internationally recognised Institute for Creative Leather Technologies (formerly British School of Leather Technology). With strong, international industrial links, the Institute is committed to fostering the commercial exploitation of materials research and technology.


The Centre for Research into Sustainable Wastes Management is making significant strides in the areas that are central to the resource management agendas on an international, national, regional and local level. Working closely with an array of strategic partners, nationally and internationally, the Centre is a strategic resource for government, non-governmental organisations, industry and commerce.


The School’s Lift Technology and High Performance Engineering Research Group is dedicated to the research of dynamics and vibration of vertical transportation and material handling, receiving strong support from leading local and international lift manufacturing companies.


The Landscape and Biodiversity Research Group focuses on fundamental and applied research in the area of landscape ecology and its relationship to biodiversity and works in collaboration with a number of UK and international universities and research centres.


The Healthcare Waste and Resources Research Group aims to be a multi-stakeholder, research driven body, recognised internationally as the leading UK authority on research into the management of healthcare waste.


The Radon and Health in Built and Natural Environment Research Group specialises in the identification of best practice in radon measurements and remediation methodology as well as the investigation of radon-geophysical phenomena such as earthquake precursor events.


The Computing and Robotics Group research mobile robotics, teaching of computing, data analysis and modelling, and application of neural networks, while the R Users and Data Exploration Group focuses on the development of new techniques and methodologies for the analysis and modelling of data, with current emphasis on radon-geophysical data.
