The School of Engineering, Arts, Science and Technology prides itself on offering excellent learning and teaching in an environment that supports world-class application-focused research in the subject areas relevant to our curricula. The School has enjoyed sustained investment in teaching spaces and specialist facilities. It is housed in the modern James Hehir building (opened in 2010 with £25m investment) and the upgraded West Building (opened in Sept 2016 with £5m investment). A new technology centre (The DigiTech Centre) in partnership with BT plc has opened at Adastral Park (with £9.6m investment including a state-of-the-art Juniper networking sandpit, Cyber Range, AI Compute Server and fully equipped IT suites) and welcomed its first computing students in January 2021.

The Technology Subject Area provides a portfolio of degree programmes in the fields of computing, cyber security, network engineering, artificial intelligence, web development, and games development. Our state-of-the-art facilities and commitment to high-quality teaching, research and knowledge exchange across the spectrum of technology have enabled us to expand our offering significantly in recent years. Our core degree portfolio currently includes:

  • BSc (Hons) Computing (pathways in Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence, Web and Mobile Development)
  • BSc (Hons) Games Development
  • BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions Apprenticeship Degrees (Software Engineering, Network Engineering, Cyber Security)
  • MSc Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
  • MSc Applied Cyber Security (New for September 2023)
  • MSc Advanced Computing (New for September 2023)
  • Due to the temporary leave of a member of staff, the Technology Subject Area is seeking to appoint a fixed-term Lecturer in Computing to undertake teaching and research in cyber security. Although the appointment is fixed term in the first instance, subject to available funding, the post duration may be extended or made permanent.

    The ideal candidate will have industry or research experience within the subject area and demonstrable knowledge and practical ability to teach and support students in their learning of cyber security topics.
