Course content

The Infrastructure and Environment research division seeks to respond to current societal challenges through the ideas and creativity of engineering design.

The UK's first Chair of Civil Engineering was established at the University in 1840 and early occupants such as William J. M. Rankine set a research ethos that has endured. Rankine worked at the boundaries of engineering, translating and refining new ideas so that they might ultimately be used in engineering design.

We comprise a number of groups undertaking research in a broad range of subjects in the field of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Our research seeks to advance our knowledge, understanding and engineering of the built and natural environment.
