Research and solutions on an international stage

Global security

BU is a truly global institution. We’re ranked among the world’s best new universities by Times Higher Education magazine, welcome students from across the globe, and run a successful international placement programme.

This worldwide outlook also feeds into our research and work in matters of technological and socio-economic security with organisations. This ranges from the expertise available from the innovative work of the Computing and Informatics Research Centre, to our Disaster Management Centre.

In line with our track record of supporting the development of advanced manufacturing, we’ve also helped to save lives at sea – with BU research leading to a solution to friction and wear problems on lifeboat slipways, put in place across 38% of RNLI lifeboat stations.
