Public Engagement in the School of Science and Engineering
We are committed to public engagement as part of University’s Public Engagement Strategy
As a University, our mission is to transform lives locally and globally, through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. Our world is a fascinating place. Examples of ground breaking science, technology, engineering and mathematics are all around us.
Our team of staff and students are dedicated to creating a culture of curiosity, creativity and confidence throughout communities across Scotland, creating events, programmes and experiences that help us all understand a little bit more about the world around us.
Because when people come together, great things can happen.
If you would like to get involved in any aspect of public engagement and outreach at the School, partner with us, or just to find out more about what we do, please get in touch.
