Welcome to the Strategic Plan 2021-2025 for the College of Science and Engineering at NUI Galway.  The strategy builds on the expertise and ambition of the members of the College, but is closely aligned with and focused by the University strategy, and its value-led approach. 
By bringing together science and engineering, our College of Science and Engineering is where discovery and creativity collide to catalyse innovation and to drive transformational change.  We are a research-intensive college and our research informs our teaching. 
Our ambition is underpinned by our people, our students, and our staff who are creative, innovative and confident researchers and educators; our purpose, excellent and impactful research and teaching; and our place, embedded in our city and region, with an international reach and outlook.  Together, these drive our vision for the College of Science and Engineering to make a meaningful and sustainable difference at a global level.  Our endeavours will continually focus on excellence, respect, openness and sustainability as the enablers of our vision.
In setting out our Strategic Plan, we draw from our passion for discovery and creativity to define what we will do, and in our associated Action Plan for embedding College Strategy‌‌, we set out how we will do it, in order to provide focus and direction for our activities over the next five years.
