We aim for research excellence and are keen on international collaboration. The Faculty is organized into four schools: The School of Engineering, The School for the Built Environment, The School for Information Technology, and The Graduate School of Technology Management

EBIT is highly ranked globally; our programmes are accredited by statutory and professional bodies at both national and international levels.
