Course content

Our research tackles the problems faced by society today and develops the knowledge and tools to build the communities of thefuture. Many of our projects have already hada significant impact on society; the impact of others will be felt by generations to come.

Our research supports core themes of Transport, and Resilience and Sustainability. It benefits from being funded by industry, charities and research councils, which encourages innovative thinking andcreates internationally recognised research. We pride ourselves in offering a stimulating research environment and are always keen to discuss research opportunities with individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds.
