Lincoln Council approves engineering hub build

Planners at City of Lincoln Council have approved the University of Lincoln’s proposals to build an engineering hub at its Brayford Pool campus, as part of a partnership project between the university and engineering company Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery.

The school has a temporary presence in Think Tank, the city council’s business innovation centre, while the £7m engineering school is being built.

The first students will enrol on undergraduate and postgraduate engineering degrees in September 2010 and the school expects to move into the new building in September 2011.
