Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering

Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering has a unique character as the only interdisciplinary department in the UK.
Our student standards are among the highest in the country for both disciplines, both at entry and at graduation.

Teaching

We have around 600 undergraduate students, 100 MSc students, over 50 research students and staff, and around 35 teaching and research academics.
Due to the joint nature of the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, collaborative, integrated design is central to our studio teaching across all disciplines.
All our undergraduate programmes can be taken as sandwich courses with supervised industrial placements.

Research

Sustainability within the built environment is core to our teaching and research and is reflected strongly across our degree programmes and research centre activities.
Research is organised around four centres BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials (BRE CICM), Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA), Energy and Design of Environments (EDEn) and Research unit for Water, Environment and Intrastructure Resilience (WEIR).
Our research was ranked joint first in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) in the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning unit of assessment. Overall, 90% of our research activity was graded as either world-leading or internationally excellent.
