Research in the Department received the top 5* rating in the Research Assessment Exercises (RAEs) 1996 and 2001. The RAE is conducted nationally to assess the quality of research in universities and colleges in the UK. The Department came top of the rankings for General Engineering in the lastest RAE in 2008. 90% of our research submission was judged to be either internationally excellent or world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour. 45% of our submission achieved the world-leading status; this far exceeds the result for any other submission in General Engineering and is not surpassed by any institution in any other engineering or scientific discipline. To view the RAE results and submissions, see RAE 2001; RAE 2008.
