The School of Technology is concerned with the development of new technologies and processes to improve the quality of life of society as a whole. It incorporates engineering, computer science and technology, chemical engineering and biotechnology, sustainability leadership and business and management. The school is responsible for such breakthroughs as the jet engine and the webcam and continues to push the boundaries of engineering and technological knowledge.
The Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) brings together leaders from business, policy and academia to gain fresh perspectives and to collaborate across traditional boundaries, helping develop solutions to address the complex social and environmental challenges our societies face.
The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology has an outstanding reputation for interdisciplinary collaborations across the fields of chemistry, physics, mathematics, clinical medicine and biology. Its scientists work with industry leaders and entrepreneurs to develop innovative solutions to a range of global challenges, from finding new ways to create sustainable energy and conserve the environment to developing novel healthcare technologies to diagnose and combat disease.
The Department of Computer Science and Technology is internationally recognised as a pioneer, and continues to be a leader, in its subjects. The Department's staff has included two Turing Award winners, and fellows of the major science and engineering academies in both the UK and USA.
One of the largest and highest ranked such departments in the world, Cambridge's Department of Engineering is driving forward major projects on pivotal issues such as energy, cities, transport, healthcare and manufacturing.
The University of Cambridge consists of over 100 departments, faculties, schools and institutes which house research and teaching communities. In addition, strategic research initiatives and networks build on areas of existing research strength by bringing together a critical mass of expertise from across the academic community.
