The School of Civil Engineering and Surveying
The School of Civil Engineering and Surveying has a broad range of research interests ranging from structural analysis through to sustainability appraisal. Much of this work directly addresses real world problems and the School has been very successful in securing funding to support this work from a range of sources including Research Councils, the Technology Strategy Board and Industrial Partners. Recent projects have involved collaboration with Astra Zeneca, BAE Systems, the Ministry of Defence, Mayer Brown Ltd and Grundon Waste Management.
Research and Knowledge Transfer Activities
There are three main themes to the research activity and all academic staff are associated with one of these areas:
