Our forward thinking approach has powered progress for 125 years. Today, our unstoppable institution is bolstered by countless industry initiatives and innovative research programmes, building a thriving education community in Salford and beyond. The University of Salford formed from a merger of technical colleges and institutes, created to educate and train a growing workforce. With a past entrenched in industry, we have continued to build on our principles of getting students work-ready.
Our university community encompasses over 23,000 students, 2500 staff and 170,000 alumni who come to study, teach and research here from all around the world. Our thriving industry-focused research is cutting edge, rising to the challenges and opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution. As ‘thinking machines’ continue to replace human tasks and jobs, and smart cities become a reality, our focus for the next few years is to strengthen our position specifically in robotics, digital and smart living. We already have a solid base on which to build from, as these three areas cut across everything that we already do. Whether it be: research into ‘gentle’ robots that can handle delicate items on a production line, working with industry to deliver our leading prosthetics work that helps patients recover their movement more quickly, or students learning about systems that will safely carry people from A to B in autonomous vehicles; everything we do works alongside industry in innovative ways to meet the needs of our environment and workforce of the future. With these strong foundations, we look forward to even greater achievements in the future. Contact: P: +44 (0) 161 295 5000 E: enquiries@salford.ac.uk Photo credit: University of Salford
