Research

From optimising the management of large-scale complex networks, through the long-term behaviour and interactions of structures and soils with their surroundings, down to the development of new materials and the monitoring and control of air and water quality, our research focuses on the delivery of sustainable infrastructure in the widest of contexts.

Overview

Over the past ten years, very strong cross-disciplinary research themes have developed, particularly in sustainability, air quality and water, linking our staff with researchers in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences and the Centre for Environment and Sustainability, as well as in other parts of the University.

By sharing resources with other departments we can support multi-disciplinary, multi-scale research which spans traditional subject boundaries and enables science-led enquiry to create engineered solutions to industrially relevant problems both nationally and globally.

Publications

We actively publish papers in leading, peer reviewed journals and at international conferences. Take a look at details of publications for each individual academic, or search through our Department's publications using the Open Access Database.

What we have to offer

We offer numerous facilities including a Materials and Structures laboratory, Air Quality Lab and a Geotechnical laboratory which our research students benefit from.

Studentships

Inelastic performance of steel-timber hybrid building systems

Funding information:
The studentship is fully funded by the University of Surrey. Tuition fees and stipend are available for Home students. Excellent international students are encouraged to apply, and full funding can be obtained depending on the quality of the application.
