Academic Enterprise Centres
Academic Enterprise Centres are how the University of Salford disseminates research outcomes by doing consultancy for industrial companies or other clients.
Our internationally renowned academics, many with practical experience, come from professional and culturally diverse backgrounds to offer students leading edge, world class thinking.
We offer a range of management-focused, professionally accredited, undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses developed with built environment industries to meet their needs.
Courses can be studied full-time, part-time or online - options which allow students to combine a career with study.
At undergraduate level our full-time courses offer industrial placement and sponsorship opportunities. Around 65% of our graduates achieve a first or 2:1 degree (compared to a national average of 52% in the same subjects) and 96% of our graduates find related employment, or go on to further study by the time they graduate.
We also offer world-class research opportunities for professional development. The research arm of the School of the Built Environment is the UK's most successful. Our research themes embrace information communication technology, management, and the environment.
