Organisation profile

Profile Information

The Centre for Sustainable Engineering carries out original research and innovation to support the process of designing and operating systems such that they consume resources at a rate that does not compromise the natural environment.

The research activities of the theme are carried out by three principal research groups: Smart Energy and Smart Grid; Construction Innovation and Research; and Hydrogen Engineering and Decarbonisation Technologies.

The activities carried out within the centre are multidisciplinary in nature, and we work closely with other centres across the University.

Our objectives are:

  • To carry out research on state of the art engineering and design principles to support sustainability in industry, business and society
  • To attract research, innovation and development funding in collaboration with local, national and international partners
  • To establish collaborative research and innovation related to sustainable engineering and design with local and global partners
  • To work with our local, national and international partners to address societal, technological and economic challenges
  • To provide support or consultancy for global research, innovation and development activities linked with sustainable engineering and design, and allied research
  • To carry out near-to-market research and product development with our industry and university partners
  • To create opportunities for placements and collaborative innovation in support of our students' development and employability
  • To publish research contributions in high quality, internationally respected journals and conferences
  • To develop press and public relations activities related to the research and innovation activities of the centre
