Course Summary

Overview

This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in this area, please make contact with the Dean to discuss your proposal.

The Engineering Division is home to the University’s leading specialist centre - the Urban Water Technology Centre (UTWC) that has a unique focus on the interface between scientific and technological research addressing the challenges of building resilient and sustainable communities. Our strengths derive from valuable links established between academia and industry at a national and international level in the construction and civil engineering, water, waste, manufacturing, food and drinks sectors.

Our research focuses on applying technological and sustainable solutions to contemporary problems. Our knowledge transfer expertise and management supporting tools assist a wide range of industrial and non-industrial stakeholders such as national and local government, a wide range of private sector organisations, regulatory bodies, water and waste companies, Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and health boards.

We have a formidable track record in combining academic skills and commercial expertise with our research approach being very much multi-disciplinary and industry-facing resulting in the expertise of our staff being much sought after by businesses and professionals in the field operating at an International Level. We are a member of SAGES network, a collaboration of Scottish Universities whose goal it is to provide the highest quality/world-leading postgraduate education and research experience.
