Engineering at Sheffield Research and Partnerships

The founding motto of the University of Sheffield is Rerum Cognoscere Causas, which translates as 'to discover the causes of things'.

This ethos continues to hold strong today at the University and particularly in the Faculty of Engineering and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). Our researchers work across disciplines and with partners around the world to solve the big challenges facing the modern world - in energy, healthcare, manufacturing and infrastructure.


Our strong partnerships with large companies such as Siemens, Boeing, Rolls-Royce and Airbus, as well as with local enterprises, mean we can be confident that we're working on research problems that matter and that our curriculum prepares students for a careers in industry or academia.

People from all walks of life study here and become engineers. What they've got in common is intelligence, hard work and a desire to change the world, because that's what Sheffield engineers do.
