• ABOUT THE SCHOOL

    The School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics (ECM) is a close-knit community of staff and students. With its own dedicated campus in Wheatley, the site is equipped with excellent learning and teaching facilities, including state-of-the-art labs, computer rooms and social learning spaces. The School brings together teaching and research in the following disciplines - engineering, computing and mathematics.

    An investment of £1.6m has recently been put into the campus, enhancing the library and social learning spaces, adding a gym and student lounge - improving both the student and staff experience. Set in 80 acres of Oxfordshire parkland, Wheatley campus is home to the School of ECM. Located just a few miles from the M40 and only seven miles from Oxford city centre, the campus is linked with a regular bus service to central Oxford and the train station. There is also ample parking available on site.

    ATHENA SWAN

    It is vitally important that women are adequately represented in what has traditionally been, and is still, a male-dominated area.

    Our Faculty has been awarded the Athena SWAN Bronze award in recognition of our commitment to advancing gender equality, representation and career progression in STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths). Not only have we taken action to support women in these areas, but have made the commitment to continue to break barriers with:

    • an assessment of where the Faculty is regarding gender equality in quantitative (staff and student data) and qualitative (policies, practices, systems and arrangements) terms, identifying both challenges and opportunities;
    • a plan that builds on the assessment, the activities that are already in place and what has been learnt from these; and
    • an organisational structure (the self assessment team) to carry proposed actions forward.

    FACILITIES

    The School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics (ECM) is situated on its own dedicated technology campus. Students have access to our purpose-built £9m facility, with state-of-the-art workshops, specialist labs and computer facilities.

    Our campus boasts the latest computing equipment, computer-aided design facilities, mechanical engineering facilities, automotive and autosport engineering facilities, networking and telecommunications facilities, robotics facilities, as well as a brand new 3D printer.

    Our new mathematics building (with exclusive teaching rooms and learning spaces) looks to enhance the learning experience of our students. Our fully installed labs contain all the specialist equipment you’ll need when solving problems.

    These facilities, coupled with our support staff, promotes a friendly, close-knit community of both students and staff.
