What we offer:
As a research centre we work on funded projects (such as FP7) and in collaboration with partner organisations. We also provide specific research and consultancy, drawing on the expertise of specialist working groups in concrete & masonry, hydraulics, geotechnics, sustainable energy systems and remote sensing.
Additional services to industry include: Material development and testing for compliance, conformity and QA; specialist assessment and full-scale testing; preparation of technical guidance and guidelines; and the delivery of tailored CPD and industry training.
What we are looking for:
We would like to meet companies and other research bodies to discuss our work. This could be through consultancy or specific research collaborations, FP7 projects etc. We are also keen to explore knowledge transfer, through KTPs for example. And as a university, we are always looking for opportunities for student placements and graduate employment.
