EPSRC CDT in Sustainable Civil Engineering

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) adopts the widest possible definition of sustainability, covering the effective whole life design and performance of major civil engineering infrastructure. The Centre will address key engineering challenges of fit for purpose, economic viability, environmental impact, resilience, infrastructure inter-dependence and durability.

It will also consider the impacts of changes in population, urbanisation, available natural resources, technology and societal expectations. This requires a broad-based approach to research training, effectively integrated across the wide range of civil engineering disciplines. Very few academic institutions are capable of providing in-depth training across this range of subjects.

We are based in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial, which was ranked 4th best Civil Engineering Department in the World in the 2015 QS University rankings and the 2nd best in Europe.
