Our research

The University of Strathclyde’s advances in research output and quality in recent years have been significant.

We are now among the 20 top research intensive universities in the UK, with our research environment and research impact standing out from the crowd.

The latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) showed that we had leapt 14 places nationally and cemented our position as a leading international technological university.

It represents independent confirmation of the momentum and strategic focus we have established.

Research is of central importance in everything we do, as it informs our teaching and allows us to translate findings into impact which makes a difference to business, industry and society as a whole.

We have both breadth and depth in our research and are playing an important role in the research landscape of the UK at the highest international quality levels. The supportive conditions we offer to our academic staff has underpinned our culture of research.
