What to expect from the Faculty of Engineering and Science this year


The Faculty of Engineering and Science reflects on its many successes in 2022 and looks forward to the highlights to come in 2023.

A year to remember

2022 saw huge successes for the University of Greenwich’s Faculty of Engineering and Science. From the Faculty expanding to become a complete hub for STEM subjects, and then the formation of an exciting new partnership with Plumpton College, there was plenty for students and staff of this spilt-campus Faculty to celebrate. For the university as a whole, outstanding REF results were achieved, as well as some great results in the StudentCrowd University Awards 2022. There have also been successes in-house with the Civil Engineering department being recognised by Professor Jane Harrington for their Most Improved NSS Result.

Meanwhile, the Faculty’s portfolio of courses continues to grow. New for this year in the Forensic Science department, BSc Forensic and Digital Investigation and the same with Industrial Practice are now running, while Forensic Toxicology and the same with Industrial Practice have been announced for September 2023. Forensic science itself at the university was recently ranked third in the UK – a well-deserved result for this established department – and more growth is set to come, with Head of School of Science Professor Brownlow determined to continue to develop and expand forensic science teaching and research at the university.

FES welcomes Plumpton College as new Partner College

Food Science and Nutrition is another course in the Natural Resources Institute announced for September 2023 and will be complemented by the new multipurpose food laboratory on the Medway Campus, designed for use by staff, students and industry partners.

In the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, a new conversion Master’s course (subject to validation) has been announced, MSc Data Science and its Applications, which will be open to students from non-STEM disciplines.

Plenty of events to get involved with

The Faculty are proud to offer free public events throughout the year. Take advantage of free talks delivered by guest speakers – for example Pharmaceutical Granulation Expert Professor Bindhu Gururajan, who gave an open lecture for the university in January 2023 – or learn something new from in-house subject experts at the Medway Talks, a series run in partnership with the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University. For families, our annual Heritage Open Day is a great way to explore our historic Medway Campus site and get involved in fun engineering and science activities led by our technical teams.

There is also plenty in the pipeline for the Faculty’s growing outreach provision, from workshops with schools to the university’s annual interactive talks at venues in Medway and Greenwich as part of worldwide festival Pint of Science. There are also plans to again deliver a STEM extravaganza at the 2023 Medway Gaming Festival, and for the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences to again host gaming convention AdventureX on the Greenwich Campus.

For all public events, please see here. You can also keep up to date with Faculty happenings via Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter.
