The College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at Bangor University is one of the leading centres in the UK for teaching and research in an extensive range of science subjects. We aim to educate and train a new generation of scientists aware of societal and environmental needs in a world-class research-led environment.
The university has recently reconfigured it academic Schools and Colleges with the aim of improving the teaching and research environment for both students and staff. The former schools of: Environment, Natural Resources and Geography, Biological Sciences and Chemistry have been brought together to form the School of Natural Sciences and the former Schools of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science are now the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering. These two new Schools along with School of Ocean Sciences have come together to form the College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering.
The College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering
The college consists of three academic schools:
- School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering
- School of Natural Sciences
- School of Ocean Sciences
As well as a wide range of research and teaching facilities including: large, modern, well equipped teaching and research laboratories; a £3.5 million seagoing research vessel and three smaller inshore vessels; a Natural History Museum with extensive invertebrate and vertebrate collections; a research farm: Henfaes Research Centre the BioComposites Centre, Treborth Botanic Garden; Environment Centre for Wales.and extensive marine and freshwater aquaria. Seabird, seal and dolphin populations are resident locally and accessible for field study
We offer a wide range of undergraduate, taught postgraduate degrees, a range of MRes programmes and formally structured research degree programmes.
