“The Faculty are delighted with the strong Ulster University REF2021 performance in Unit of Assessment 12 – Engineering at Ulster which has seen 90% of our research outputs rated as world-leading or internationally excellent while having more than doubled the number of eligible staff submitted since the last exercise.
This coupled with our inclusion in a group of institutions who are ranked joint first in the UK for having attained a 100% 4*/3* rating in the quality of the impact from their research, is a testament to the staff in the School of Engineering who have actively contributed to this success.”
“Engineering research at Ulster has continued to grow both in terms of scale and quality. We have more than doubled the number of our staff submitted to REF since 2014 and our percentage of research deemed to be world-leading has more than tripled.
Conducting impactful research has always been key to our strategy and we are delighted to be recognised amongst the top tier of Universities delivering exclusively 3* and 4* research impact in engineering.
In addition, we have strived to create an environment that supports all out researchers in their ambition to realise the highest quality research and are delighted to also have the entirety of our research environment recognised as 3*/4*.”
