We are an open and inclusive university that is focused on transforming the lives of our students. Our corporate plan sets out an ambitious agenda for our future success which focuses on the delivery of high-quality teaching and learning and excellence in research.

Educated to first degree standard in an engineering, computing, construction or closely related subject, you will also have a doctorate or comparable professional experience in a relevant discipline with credible professional experience and/or research publications.
