Its teaching and research programmes have evolved constantly in response to the needs of industry, commerce, and education. Today, the university is internationally recognised as one of the most innovative and business-engaged institutions in the UK.

In addition to its exceptional facilities at MediaCityUK, the university has other truly unique resources, such as its Energy House, the Centre for Virtual Environments and Future Media, the Clinical Simulation Suite, and its Gait Analysis Laboratory.
