Research and teaching in CES are based around three inter-related themes
Building on our international reputation in environmental systems analysis to apply a range of inter-disciplinary tools to the analysis, design and management of sustainable technologies, systems and infrastructures
Building on our existing interdisciplinary collaborations – across the University – to develop a strong conceptual framing for sustainable development using insights and methods from the social sciences.
Building on our strong links with policy-makers, businesses and NGOs to develop policy and industry-relevant responses to long-term environmental and social issues.
"Undertaking a collaborative PhD at CES ranks as one of the most rewarding endeavours that I have undertaken. The scale of support - and the many interesting, challenging and insightful discussions with my supervisor - greatly benefited both my academic research and my professional work. I am extremely pleased that I chose to conduct my PhD with CES."
