Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Set out over four-storeys and incorporating 6000m2 of teaching and laboratory space, the new STEM building will allow the University to build on its already strong STEM offering. This will include a range of new science courses including Pharmacy, Nutrition, Physics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, along with Geology and Mechanical Engineering.

It will also include a new Science and Engineering Outreach Centre to promote the value of science and engineering to local schools and the wider Bedfordshire community.

Many of our computing courses are accredited by The Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). We have partnerships with world-leading companies such as National Instruments and 7Safe, enabling a career focused curriculum. And with teaching led by world-class research and driven by business projects, you’ll have exceptional career prospects when you leave us.
