University of Birmingham School of Engineering - EH Smith

University of Birmingham School of Engineering


This state-of-the-art 12,000sq.m facility spans five floors and features a double-height atrium. The development aims to not only bring together many of the institution’s engineering disciplines, but also provide opportunities for successful collaboration between academia and the industry.
