Work begins on The University of Birmingham School of Engineering
The University has begun work on a new School of Engineering building, due for completion in 2020. It will bring together many engineering disciplines into one state-of-the-art building.
The new School of Engineering will sit alongside a world class centre of excellence in rail in partnership with industry, focusing on digital systems. Funded as part of the newly-created UK Railway Research and Innovation Network (UKRRIN), it will focus on railway control and simulation, data integration and cybersecurity, condition monitoring and sensing, and improved methods for technology introduction. This builds on existing strength in rail research.
