Sussex engineering lab gets £10m boost

Posted on 01/05/2015 by IED

The University of Sussex is investing £10 million in a new engineering and robotics lab on the back of a 60% surge in applications for engineering and computing degrees. Half of the money will come from the government’s £200m fund for STEM teaching.

The development includes internal refurbishment of one of the buildings on campus to create a new student-focused hub, as well as a suite of 'top spec' computers, and new teaching and project workspaces.

The newly founded Computing, Robotics, Electronics and Mechatronics centre (CREaM) will allow students to learn about advancements in robotics and autonomous systems by working with the latest technologies behind innovations such as auto pilots, drones, space robotics and driverless cars.
