The University of Bradford has been a centre of excellence in teaching and research for over 50 years. Our academic and industry experts are shaping the future of their sectors, in world-class facilities. Our graduates are global in their perspective, capable in their abilities, and highly employable.
96% of our research is rated world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised. Our innovative programmes rank alongside some of the best in the world, and we’ve invested around £200 million on student facilities and high-tech learning environments in the last few years.
We are very proud of our diverse and entrepreneurial City. We already work closely with local Schools, employers, and public services. We support schools to find the right career paths for their pupils, we help employers find quality graduates and use our research and teaching to innovate and develop their companies, and we work with the Council and the NHS to improve the lives of people living in the City.
Bradford Manufacturing Week is an extension of our commitment to the City. Manufacturing fits very well with our range of academic expertise in digital health, medical and automotive engineering, digital manufacturing, chemistry and chemical engineering, and pharmaceutical technology. BMW was a great success last year, so we didn’t hesitate to get involved as sponsors again this year. We are looking forward to being part of helping young people get enthused about the potential of manufacturing, and supporting local manufacturers to prosper.
