Student spaces

One of the strategic aims of Engineering at Sheffield is to provide students with state-of-the-art, practical laboratories and equipment.

A large student study space in The Diamond. There are multiple students working. There are orange beams around the space.

Most of the engineering laboratories in the Diamond are designed to accommodate 80 students. Supporting these laboratories is a dedicated Diamond engineering team of over 40 staff, who will work closely with each of the engineering departments to ensure the activities you undertake integrate with your degree programme.

There is also a Project Space and Workshop for students to undertake practical work in their own time.
