Science of Discovery

Uncover the secrets of our solar system

The Science of Discovery captures research that examines the universe and the world around us at a fundamental level.

We can learn a great deal from our universe, and the Science of Discovery dares to delve into the stars and research what makes up our galaxy, from pure mathematics and gravitational wave technology, to quantum information and radio astronomy.

Research within the Science of Discovery allows Engineering and Mathematical Sciences Schools to learn about the tools and techniques mathematicians, scientists and engineers use to find solutions to real-world problems.
