A special ceremony has been held to mark the final step in building a new engineering Research Institute on the Swansea University Bay Campus.

The £35 million state-of-the-art facility will specialise in novel materials, processing and numerical technologies.

The Institute for Innovative Materials, Processing and Numerical Technologies (IMPACT) will facilitate the university's expansion, supporting the local and global engineering industry with collaborative research.

IMPACT is set to officially launch later this year and will provide industry with opportunities for collaborative projects to develop novel materials, products and processes that can be used in the engineering sector.

Swansea University Registrar, Andrew Rhodes, said: "IMPACT is another example of Swansea University leading the way in Engineering - this world class state-of-the-art facility will deliver a transformative research environment for future collaboration between academics and industry in the pursuit of new technology. The laying of the last brick is an exciting moment as we move towards the opening of the building later this year."
