Faculty of Engineering

Strathclyde has one of the largest and best equipped engineering faculties in the UK. It is the largest in Scotland.

Renowned for strong links with industry

We collaborate with overseas universities and industries. Thanks to our links with overseas partners, we have a growing international community of students, researchers and staff.

High employment rate

Our strong links to business help us consistently achieve high graduate employment rates. Many employers target our programmes. This means students often have a job lined up before they graduate.

Professional accreditation

All of our established undergraduate engineering courses, except Biomedical Engineering, are fully accredited by the relevant professional engineering institutions. This means you will become eligible for chartered engineer status after you graduate.

Exceptional facilities

Our newly refurbished building gives you access to state-of-the-art equipment and work spaces. We have also invested in our other facilities including the Advanced Forming Research Centre, the Power Networks Demonstration Centre and the Advanced Space Concepts Lab.


Students of the Faculty of Engineering receive departmental scholarships. They also receive awards from industry and professional bodies to help with their studies. Many also provide placement opportunities which offer hands-on industry experience. Organisations that take part include BP, Iberdrola, The Royal Academy of Engineering, The Lloyds Register Foundation and Atkins.

Leaders in research

Strathclyde engineering research has a global impact. The Faculty is home to some of the UK’s most significant practical research.
