Our work is truly interdisciplinary with a strong focus on developing our knowledge for our colleagues as well as students.

The University’s Campus Masterplan includes three new buildings for the SEE School and marks a real step change in our ability to deliver world leading research and innovation. The SEE School itself will have a brand-new dedicated building that will house many of our colleagues under one roof, a new ERDF funded Robotics Centre, as well as our ‘Energy House 2.0’ – an unrivalled environment to develop future energy saving products.

  • The ERDF GM AI Foundry is an exciting project that brings together 4 major North West universities in a high profile, collaborative consortium that will assist regional SMEs in developing business growth through the application and utilisation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for innovation.

  • The post holder will be responsible for managing all operational aspects of the University’s AI Foundry project activities, ensuring successful delivery to all stakeholders. Project management and business development will be the key activities, ensuring that the objectives of each of the activities are met
