The main teaching buildings for the Engineering and Design departments, the four Tower buildings (A, B, C and D) include a range of student facilities such as PC laboratories, and facilities for  PhD researchers.

On Tower D, the installation of a wind turbine is being used to evaluate the quantity and quality of the urban wind resource. The amount of energy produced each day depends on the direction of the wind and the local weather. Wind speed and direction are monitored, indicating the level of turbulence that the turbine’s mechanical design must endure, and the likely variability of electricity production.
