Energy and environment

Helping to generate and supply clean, renewable energy and create a sustainable environment for our planet's future.

Our engineers play a vital role in reducing environmental impact and increasing sustainable practices in a wide range of areas, including construction, fuel, energy, waste disposal, water quality and flood protection.

With a practical environment that has been designed to face global energy challenges, we play a key role in addressing the increasing demand for sustainable and low carbon technologies.

We are attracting the next generation of engineers and researchers in the fields of sustainable energy through high quality interdisciplinary research, education and training.
