     Pioneering
     Research
     At Lincoln, students have the chance to learn from, and engage in,
     pioneering research projects alongside academics who are changing
     lives through groundbreaking studies. Many of our courses ofer
     opportunities for students to develop their research skills and gain
     hands-on experience in a variety of contexts and settings.
     Engaging with research is an important way of broadening skill
     sets, such as developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
     This can help students gain relevant experience that can be further
     developed during study or in industry.
     At Lincoln, our research is making a real diference to society in
     the UK and around the world. We are home to academics who
     are leaders in their felds and who are addressing some of the
     world’s most pressing problems. These include Nigel Allinson
     MBE, Distinguished Professor of Image Engineering, whose work
     is improving cancer treatments (read more on page 29). The
     knowledge of these expert staf informs our teaching, as we aim to
     ensure that our programmes are shaped by the latest developments
     in research and industry, and that our students are prepared for
     their future careers.
