Course content

The UCL Centre for Urban Sustainability & Resilience offers companies and organisations a unique opportunity to fund their specialist research needs through partnership with our EngD research community. Our programme has two key themes: Sustainability and Resilience. We focus on reducing the impact of our cities on ecological systems (air, water, food chains, and so on) whilst improving quality of daily lives and coping with the problems of population growth and changing demographics such as an ageing society. We are concerned with engineering systems and developing technologies that will increase the resilience of our urban systems (education, health, transport, financial, governance, etc) and the infrastructure that supports them (for example: roads, communications networks, buildings) to shocks arising from natural, economic and technological disasters.
