Most academic activities at the School of Computing, Science & Engineering are organised by subject - including undergraduate degrees, postgraduate degrees, postgraduate research, research, outreach and enterprise.

Acoustics, Audio and Video

Acoustic & audio engineering, music & sound technology, TV, animation & social media are our passions. We are leaders in teaching, research and commercial work in audio and acoustic engineering, video and television.

Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Salford provides a wide range of opportunities for undergraduate study, postgraduate study and research within the areas of aeronautical engineering, aerospace, aircraft engineering, aviation technology, aerospace, and pilot studies – all areas with excellent employment prospects.

Civil Engineering

We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses in Civil Engineering with a strong practical content which is in demand from modern employers. Research into Civil Engineering is carried out in the Engineering Research Centre.

Computer Networking and Telecommunications

The school's undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in this subject are both taught at MediaCityUK; the undergraduate degree is linked to the University's Cisco Networking Academy. Academic research and doctoral programmes focus on areas such as mobile networking, intelligent buildings, networked multimedia applications and other computer networking and telecommunications technologies.

Computer Science and Software Engineering

Emphasising the development of practical and applied skills to service the needs of business and commerce we offer several undergraduate degrees, many of which are professionally accredited by the British Computer Society. We also provide postgraduate taught courses and supervised research to Doctoral level.


We offer two undergraduate mathematics courses, BSc (Hons) Mathematics and BSc (Hons) Financial Mathematics, both of which are designed to prepare you for industry and employment. Our mathematics courses performed particularly well in the National Student Survey 2016, with 95% of students agreeing that staff are good at explaining things (Financial Mathematics) and an outstanding 94% student satisfaction rate for our BSc Mathematics course.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses at the School of Computing, Science and Engineering cover all of the key areas that are important for the development of strong all-round mechanical engineers.

Petroleum and Gas Engineering

The subject offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes covering the various fields of Petroleum and Gas Engineering, taught by academics who perform research into both experimental and theoretical simulation in a wide range of fields connected with oil, gas and spray technology.


At Salford, we teach outstanding Physics degrees with a high level of employer engagement and perform internationally excellent theoretical and applied research through the Materials and Physics Research Centre.

Robotics and Systems Engineering

Robotics is a multidisciplinary subject covering many engineering disciplines; our programme and research study areas including automation, mobile robotics cognition/AI and many more.

Electronic Engineering

Electronic engineering is at the heart of UK manufacturing, and central to UK Government manufacturing policy is the development of niche, highly specialised, high quality engineering products that are aimed at global markets. Our programme aims to develop graduate electronic engineers who can develop solutions to a wide range of technical problems. We also offer a foundation degree for this subject.
