New STEM building

STEM building

Plans have now been submitted for a new state-of-the-art £13.7m teaching centre for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students to be built at our Colchester Campus.

Scientists across our vibrant Faculty are collaborating in research and exploring innovative ways of working to improve society.

With world-leading and internationally excellent (REF 2014) research and impact in health, life sciences, psychology, artificial intelligence, robotics, mathematics and Big Data, our strategy is to ensure that our research and education activities are mapped onto national and international research priorities.

Our state-of-the-art facilities include our £1.5m Networked Media Laboratory, our £3m Centre for Brain Science, a new £13.7m STEM teaching facility (to be completed by 2017), membership of three RCUK Doctoral Training Centres, and a diversity of expertise, infrastructure, and new technologies.
