Research at the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment

Research in the Faculty of TDE is based around powerful well led research groupings that benefit from the high level complementary skills and expertise of their members.

In these groups staff of all levels, and research students, collaborate to address specific research agenda. Groups operate at the highest levels of academic excellence, are networked with other UK and international academic partners, work successfully with practice and industry, and are committed to high quality high impact research and knowledge exchange.

Where appropriate, groups collaborate across the Faculty and with others in the University to deliver informed holistic responses. All groups benefit from the broad range of technical facilities and infrastructure available within the Faculty and University.
