A new £37 million development at Lincoln University’s Brayford Campus is set to become the brand new purpose-built base of the University’s School of Engineering, due to open in September 2011.
Lincoln University has started work on its new School of Engineering on its Brayford Campus, due to be completed in 2011. The new £37 million development is the first purpose-built Engineering School to be constructed for more than 20 years, and marks a partnership between the University and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, who provided significant investment for the project. At present the School is basing itself at the Think Tank centre on Ruston Way, but once completed the development will offer brand new teaching and research labs as well as lecture halls and seminar facilities for the 20 full-time and 24 part-time students already embarking on an Engineering degree course this year.
As well as investing in the University’s future, the project is providing the local economy a much-needed boost with 129 jobs created as part of the build.
