The Faculty has a long and proud history of scientific contributions and research breakthroughs in several disciplines – from designing Jaguar Land Rover’s first ever cruise control system to pioneering precision, computer-controlled laser treatment for cancer patients. Research is central to our mission to promote creativity, innovation and knowledge exchange. We have over 100 staff involved in research and benefit from an impressive record of research partnerships with commercial, academic and government organisations, offering a range of technology and science development opportunities for next generation researchers or commercial collaboration.
Our research is proactively addressing key challenges facing the 21st century world: identifying renewable and alternative energy; developing safer, smarter and ‘greener’ transport; combating the effects of climate change; and protecting communities and their environments. We are continually conceiving ever smarter technology systems and inventing high performance and sustainable engineering, manufacturing and construction methods and materials.
Research within the Faculty is organised into four over-arching specialist research centres, which are multidisciplinary and work collaboratively across the Faculty and wider University. Read about each of the centres, listed below, our research strategy and discover some of our research successes. You can also learn more of the research impact being made throughout Coventry University.
