For business

The Faculty of Science and Technology has expertise in the domains of cloud computing, IP networking, wireless communication, multimedia gaming, VLSI/microelectronics, mobile apps development, business analytics and modelling (healthcare).

We can provide solutions to a business need or work with you to leverage new possibilities. We’ll operate in the way that suits you best: contract applied research, one-off consultancy, as an ongoing partnership or via corporate training.

We also provide development, support and training for relevant industries and the research community via our specialised centres of excellence: Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC), Health and Social Care Modelling Group (HSCMG) and Applied DSP and VLSI Research Group (ADVRG).

Recently, Westminster Creative Computing (WCC) has been created out of the desire to extend our engagement strategy with cultural institutions and apply our research to the needs of digital programmes for families and young people in the cultural heritage, tourism and creative industries.

With naturally inquisitive and analytical minds, our life science academics have expertise and problem-solving skills of value to all business types.

Are you looking to?

  • Extend your research and development capability
  • Develop a new product, or improve an existing one
  • Up-skill your technicians
  • Update your healthcare professionals
  • Hire our graduates
  • Learn more about the human body, health or biotechnology

Our expertise ranges from the molecular level – we identified the right natural material for Neal’s Yard to replace synthetics preservatives in their skincare range – all the way up to the macro – the whole human body. We're helping an elite athlete reach his personal best in the lead up to the Olympic Games in London and partnering with the NHS to combat long-term back pain.
