Powering innovation: the new home for the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science

Spectra will be a hub of innovation, research and enterprise within the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The countdown has begun to the opening of our new, multi-million-pound Spectra Building. Designed to transform our students’ and staff’s learning, teaching and research experience within the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), it will also expand the services we can offer businesses to develop and deliver innovative, real-world solutions.

Set to open for the 2024 academic year, the building will be the largest single structure on campus - set over five floors - and will ensure students have access to the same technology they’ll be working with in their careers post university, whilst enjoying modern and comfortable social and collaborative spaces.

Aimed at inspiring and developing the next generation of real-world-impacting engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, and physicists - as well as the STEM leaders of tomorrow - the building will be a hub for innovation, research and enterprise.

It will benefit not only the University’s community and the wider county in terms of the research that can be advanced within it, and the high-quality skills taught and developed, but it will also serve as a centre for businesses that want access to a high technology environment and world-class academic knowledge and skill.
