New Electrical Teaching Laboratory

Second floor, South Block Annex, Department of Engineering

The Department of Engineering has a brand new electrical and electronic teaching laboratory: a £280k project which started two years ago. Major building work commenced during the summer of 2018, involved completely removing the interior of the entire second floor of the South Block Annex back to the original bare framework of the building. Then starting with a 'clean sheet' the new laboratory was designed and built to be one of the best modern teaching environments any university would be proud of, with state of the art facilities, new experiments, and seating up to 148 students. Shown in the photos below the new teaching laboratory is dedicated to support all first and second year undergraduate teaching in electrical & electronic engineering and design.

The formal opening was held in the Department of Engineering on 14th December 2018. Guest of honour, Dr. Jonathan Tudor, Director of Research and Innovation at Centrica plc unveiled the plaque marking the occasion. Dr. Lefley who led the project took the opportunity to thank all within the University who helped on the project and provided the financial support.
