Postgraduate Prospectus 2013( Brunel Uni)
Brunel was founded in 1966 as a new kind of university dedicated to providing research and teaching that are relevant to the needs of industry and society. Our mission is to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by our namesake, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Today, Brunel’s influence extends far beyond the fields of engineering, science and technology, which were its traditional strengths. It is now a broad-based University comprising eight Schools: • Arts • Business • Engineering and Design • Health and Social Care • Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics • Law • Social Sciences • Sport and Education Just as Isambard Kingdom Brunel opened up new horizons for the Victorians through his innovations and applications, so Brunel University has allowed successive generations to expand their professional and educational horizons. The diverse student body is now 15,000 strong, and one third of our students are studying for postgraduate qualifications. We have an international student contingent of around 1,600, drawn from 110 different countries.
