The Engineering Division is home to the University’s leading specialist centre - the Urban Water Technology Centre (UTWC) that has a unique focus on the interface between scientific and technological research addressing the challenges of building resilient and sustainable communities. Our strengths derive from valuable links established between academia and industry at a national and international level in the construction and civil engineering, water, waste, manufacturing, food and drinks sectors.
Our research focuses on applying technological and sustainable solutions to contemporary problems. Our knowledge transfer expertise and management supporting tools assist a wide range of industrial and non-industrial stakeholders such as national and local government, a wide range of private sector organisations, regulatory bodies, water and waste companies, Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and health boards.
