The University of Wolverhampton’s strong commitment to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) agenda has been demonstrated through recent investment to reposition itself as a leading regional university in the provision of STEM subjects.
The on-going initiative has included: the establishment of the Faculty of Science and Engineering in August 2013 and the new £25m Rosalind Franklin Science Centre; the promotion of STEM in schools through University-sponsored academies and University Technical Colleges (UTCs); the redevelopment of our engineering provision at Telford Innovation Campus, specialising in automotive and aerospace engineering through a £10m investment by the University with industry backing; and the plan for the development of Springfield Campus, a new £60m campus for the construction sector – which will be the home of the West Midlands Construction UTC and the School of Architecture and the Built Environment.
The Faculty offers unique opportunities for education and research, bringing together the major areas of science and engineering. The synergy between science, engineering, technology, mathematics and computing provides a dynamism that ensures our degree courses are challenging, relevant, highly practical and focused on the skills required in today's workplace. The Destination of Leavers of Higher Education Survey (2015) showed that 96% of our graduates find employment or pursue further study within six months of graduation.
Tailored support enables students to excel in their chosen field of expertise. Our academic and support staff provide a first-rate learning experience which instils knowledge, innovation and the entrepreneurial skills required to make a significant contribution in the workplace.
