Apply your advanced engineering skills to an industry-focused environmental engineering research project.
The School of Engineering's emphasis is on sustainable development and encompasses a broad spectrum of environmental impacts and degradation. Research activity is focused on identifying solutions to existing and emerging problems in these areas. Most of these problems result from human impact and solving them draws on techniques such as life cycle analysis, cleaner production, and eco-efficiency to develop sustainable solutions.
You can select from existing applied research projects that are well supported by industry. These projects will deliver fundamental research leading to innovative new products, processes and knowledge.
You will be closely supervised while you work on a project within one of the following research areas:
This PhD may be undertaken in a project, thesis with publication or thesis mode. Prospective candidates should discuss these modes of submission with their potential supervisor/s.
Our primary research activities are conducted within these related research centres:
