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 (TSB) and industrial partners.
