The School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences
The School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences operates at Wolverhampton City campus, Telford Innovation Campus, Wolverhampton Science Park, Springfield (Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills (ECMS)) and Hereford (Cyber Quarter).
The school’s portfolio also includes UWRacing, Cyber Quarter (Hereford) and the IoT Dudley. The School provides education, business engagement, and research, and supports many companies focusing on advanced engineering, motorsport engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence and cyber security. The School’s success has attracted wide acclaim from the Government and various research and knowledge transfer funding bodies, as evidenced by becoming the prestigious Cyber University of the Year Award in 2022. The portfolio includes a diverse range of contemporary undergraduate and postgraduate accredited programmes, including a growing transnational provision, degree apprenticeships, and on line courses.
In addition, the School provides leadership and oversight of the £12m ERDF funded Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills (ECMS). The Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills is a flagship training facility based in the Black Country. In response to gaps in skills and provision highlighted by the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership, the Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills delivers specialist training and short courses as part of a collaboration between six major organisations.
The School also supports the Midlands Centre for Cyber Security which provides a single hub for cyber security needs for small or large business. This trail-blazing project is a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council, part-funded by the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The School is also host to the University of Wolverhampton Racing (UWR) Team which provides outstanding opportunities for our students to gain industry experience working as a professional team in a variety of competitive motorsport activities including IMechE Formula Student, Motorsport Morgan Challenge and Praga Sport. This is part of the University’s commitment to producing graduates who can apply both theory and practice in industry. UWR provides unique opportunities for our students to engage in a once in a life time opportunity to study their engineering degree, while putting the theory into practice in a fast paced ultra-competitive racing environment.
