Welcome from Professor Sir Pete Downes

Our core mission at the University of Dundee is to transform lives, locally and globally, through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge.

We are doing that in all sorts of ways. The teaching we offer forms part of a student experience that is consistently rated among the best in the UK, and is producing graduates who are ready to help solve real-world problems and become future leaders across society.

We carry out research that has a real impact on people’s lives, here in Scotland and around the world. We are focused on shaping the future through innovative design, promoting the sustainable use of global resources, and improving social, physical and cultural wellbeing.
