About us

Welcome to the Technical Services website. Our team comprises approximately 200 technicians across the University. We provide specialist support to undergraduate and postgraduate students and the student experience is at the heart of what we do.

The services we provide also underpin a wide variety of academic programmes and we deliver this support via specialist laboratories, workshops, design studios and contemporary arts facilities.

Our technical staff provide a high level of expertise and technical knowledge, playing a key role in supporting students in their studies and project work.

We also provide support for research, consultancy and knowledge exchange activities. We are a forward-looking service, committed to a culture of continuous improvement and service excellence.
