A new place for collaborating with our technical community

We’ve launched our new Technicians website, a place for collaborating and sharing expertise with technicians, managers and support staff from across the University and the wider technical community.

There are many colleagues across the University with technical expertise who contribute to the outstanding learning, teaching and research that takes place at our University. We’re proud to be a founding signatory of the Technician Commitment, a nationwide scheme aiming to address the challenges facing technical staff at higher education institutions and research institutions.

Discover how we support and develop our technical staff, and find contact details for our ambassadors.

Showcasing the work of our technical community

“For the past four years I have also been volunteering with the Gatsby Foundation as part of their Technicians Make it Happen Campaign – you may have seen the photograph of me in my purple shirt teaching Protein Structure on the Virtual Reality wall in various places on the University website! I absolutely love attending events such as New Scientist Live, The Big Bang Fair and Engineering Imagination to promote STEM study and careers to young people, and particularly to ambassador Women in Engineering roles.”
