Research is of central importance in everything we do. It informs our teaching and helps us to make a difference to business, industry and society as a whole. Our Technology & Innovation Centre is transforming the way that we work with our partners. Strathclyde's advances in research output and quality have been significant.We're now among the 20 top research-intensive universities in the UK. Our research helps us to stand out from the crowd.
