Course content

One of four Royal Academy of Engineering designated Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering is home to a thriving community of over 60 academic staff, 40 technical and clerical support staff and over 240 active researchers that include fellows, associates, assistants, engineers and doctoral students.

Research is one of the founding blocks of our mission to advance knowledge and transform lives.

Committed to excellence and impact, we provide an environment where our academics and postgraduate researchers can excel, and develop knowledge and understanding to build the societies of the future.

We are a world-leading integrated centre for built environment research and education spanning civil infrastructure engineering, transport, digital transformation in construction and water and waste management. Many of our research outputs are created for, and in partnership with, industrial collaborators to ensure demonstrable impacts on policy and practice worldwide.

Our world-class teaching and research are integrated to support the technical and commercial needs of both industry and society. A key part of our ethos is our extensive links with industry resulting in our graduates being highly sought after by industry and commerce worldwide.

Our PhD students play a vital role in our world-leading research activities. Drawing on our excellent record in attracting research funds (currently standing at over £19 million), the focal point of the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering is innovative, industry-relevant research. This continues to nurture and refresh our long history of working closely with industrial partners on novel collaborative research and informs our ongoing innovative teaching and extensive enterprise activities. This is further complemented by our outstanding record of doctoral supervision which has provided, on average, a PhD graduate from the School every two weeks.
