The University of York has established the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology which formally launched on 1 August 2022. We bring physicists and engineers together to push the frontiers of knowledge, foster innovation and meet the grand challenges facing society. Our aim is to develop new technologies that work for the public good, in an environment where everyone can thrive.
As a School, equality, diversity, and inclusion are central to our culture and we strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We aim to ensure that there is a supportive and egalitarian culture at all levels and across all staff groups and offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds. Physics is proud to hold Juno Champion, and Athena Swan silver awards. Engineering is similarly proud of their Athena Swan bronze award. These awards recognise our commitment to creating a fully inclusive and supportive environment in which staff and students can thrive. We aim to inspire young people to engage with science and engineering through our outreach work.
