The University of Cambridge is one of the world leading universities and is well-known for its research activities with a research income of nearly £400 million.
The Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge (UCAM) has grown to become the largest department in the University and the largest integrated engineering department in the UK with approximately 190 faculty and PI status researchers, 300 postdoctoral researchers, 850 graduate students, and 1200 undergraduate students at any time, with about 320 students admitted each year. Internationally, Cambridge leads the 2020 Times Higher Education Rankings for Engineering and Technology outside the USA. The last REF assessment of UK research showed that Cambridge has the greatest concentration of world-leading engineering research in the country and the best environment for engineering research with a perfect score unrivalled by any other general engineering submission. The Geotechnical and Environmental Group was the recipient of an EPSRC JIF award for a new Centre for Geotechnical Process and Construction Modelling called the ‘The Schofield Centre’ (GR/M88280).
