Our Science Technicians work across a range of disciplines from biological and computing sciences to media production and digital archiving.

They manage and maintain specialist facilities, prepare equipment and support students and staff to complete projects, often coming up with innovative practical solutions.

The Technician Commitment is a university and research institution initiative, led by a steering group of sector bodies, with support from the Science Council  and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s ‘Technicians Make It Happen’ campaign. The University signed the Technician commitment in April 2018. As a signatory, we commit to take action across five key areas Visibility, Recognition, Career Development, Sustainability and Evaluating Impact. We are institutional members of HEaTED and encourage and support our technicians through the process of professional registration through the appropriate bodies, such as the Institute of Science and Technology
