New Wing, New Opportunities

New Wing, New Opportunities

We take a look around our brand new wing the Bill Brown Suite and the revamped spaces in our Queen’s Building.

The Faculty of Engineering has invested £19 million+ in a new wing and refurbishment of the Queen’s Building. Building work started in June 2016 and the space opened for teaching September 2017. Since the opening the space has been used extensively to support hands-on teaching, learning and research. It’s also been used to support our outreach and industrial engagement.

The new and improved facilities include:

  • The Bill Brown Design Suite (flexible 500sq m divisible flat-bed teaching space)
  • A student focused atrium
  • New 500 sqm general Engineering Teaching Lab Space,
  • Lab write up space
  • New Propulsion Laboratory
  • The Sonardyne Electrical and Electronic Teaching Laboratory
  • 10 group and study rooms (6-25 capacity)
  • Post Graduate office space
  • New Café and associated study space
  • A new entrance and reception desk to help welcome visitors
  • New technician’s office
  • 2 small meeting rooms
  • Project Laboratory
  • Thermodynamics Research Lab
  • Refurbished UNDT research Lab and associated office space (including state of the art Faraday cage and laser suite)
