Services and Facilities

We have some of the best Research Facilities, Laboratories and Resources in the world. Find out more about how the School of Engineering can help you with your Research, whether that be for study or business.

Consultancy

We welcome any opportunity to work with external organisations upon collaborative projects, and the University has a variety of models for collaboration, such as consultancy contracts, knowledge transfer partnerships (KTPs) or sponsored research.

Our consultancy work is arranged through the University's commercialisation organisation, Edinburgh Research and Innovation.

Small Research Facilities

The School of Engineering has a number of Small Research Facilities for hire, offering some of the most advanced technology in the world. You can learn more within our Small Research Facilities pages.

Facilities and Centres

In addition to our Small Research Facilities we have several other facilities and resources available to help you with your research. These are often used in collaborative projects with Industry, Government and other Universitys:

  • The UK All-Waters Combined Current and Wave Test Facility for wave and tidal devices enhances the University's leadership in low-carbon energy research.
  • The BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering hosts bespoke equipment to support research and consultancy with precisely controlled high temperatures and the latest image analysis techniques.
  • The recently refurbished Structures Test Hall is our high-headroom lab for testing large and unusual assemblies. There are state-of-the-art lab facilities for developing and testing NDE and material handling technologies, a smart infrastructure lab and a good range of environmental engineering testing resources for the water and waste management sectors.

Please visit out Research Resources page for a full list of facilities we have available.
