The Centre for Environment and Sustainability (CES) is an internationally-acclaimed centre of excellence on sustainable development. It takes an inter-disciplinary approach to the analysis of sustainable systems, integrating strong, engineering based approaches with insights from the social sciences to develop action-oriented, policy relevant responses to long-term environmental and social issues. CES’ leading-edge Masters and Doctoral programmes equip students for careers towards a sustainable future.
CES prides itself in providing a friendly and supportive environment in which our internationally and culturally diverse group of students and staff can flourish.
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important to all businesses. Students studying our MScs come from a wide range of undergraduate courses, and with just as many reasons why they are inspired to make sustainability a focus. Hear from our students about what inspired them to complete a Masters
We are pleased to announce another event in our series of talks called P3Connect where we invite industry experts to share their experiences and insights in sustainability.
