Research Unit for Water, Environment and Infrastructure Resilience (WEIR)

Organization profile

Organisation profile

Our unit focuses on broad issues of water research related to the field of civil engineering. The challenges of climate change, and water and energy shortage are the key drivers for our research.

Our aims

  • to inform and improve the adaptability and resilience of built infrastructure
  • to help improve water security
  • to speed up the progression of obtaining renewable energy from the sea and water

Our research areas

We welcome graduate students to join us. Please check our engineering & design PhD studentships for the latest opportunities.
