Sustainable Technology and Manufacturing

Sustainability is a crucial aspect for cities today and for the future. In the context of new technology, new ways of manufacturing will be the foundation of the new sustainable world.

Research and development will play a crucial role in this domain as innovations in technology and manufacturing offer appropriate options to society for addressing sustainability challenges.

Interrelated topics of research under this theme include low carbon solutions, engineering of road safety, construction technology, additive manufacturing, prototyping, alternative production methods for SMEs, innovative materials and devices, sustainable architecture.

We offer our Engineering and the Built Environment PhD. We've also identified a range of innovative research project opportunities for postgraduate researchers.
