Engineering impact

The School has created robust pathways that utilise our facilities and capitalise on mechanisms for knowledge transfer to build partnerships with industry and to achieve impact from our research.

Key strategic relationships have led to commercialisation and industrially funded research, with impact that is manifest in multiple formats including licensing of intellectual property, formation of spin-out companies, direct co-development work with industry partners and through consultancy.

In REF 2021, 94.4% of our research impact was recognised as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.
