Creating a better future through technology

The history of Newcastle is one of innovation, engineering and technology. Once the home of the industries that drove the industrial revolution, the North East now leads in digital, life science and manufacturing expertise. Our University is a hub of talent and technology at the centre of the region's excellence.

Making a difference

We are proud to be home to three National Innovation Centres: ageing, data, and the rural economy. We also lead the Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centres. Our Newcastle Helix development spearheads economic and technological development in the city. We work around the world developing sustainable approaches to water security.

Our students, alumni, colleagues and partners are making a difference around the world:

  • Decarbonising industry and transport through increased electrification and smart manufacturing.
  • Pioneering technologies for household and consumer products.
  • Smartening the energy system to provide reliable, clean power.
  • Building trust in services and companies that use personal data.
