Across the College of Science & Engineering, researchers - as part of the University’s Centre for Sustainable Solutions - are undertaking work that addresses the challenges of net zero, climate change and sustainability.
We investigate the history, causes and effects of environmental degradation, discover practical solutions for sustainability, and work with the University to apply solutions across our campus and beyond.

13 ways our research is addressing the net zero challenge
From rewilding Arctic soils to self-healing construction materials and winged-devices that mimic fish tails, our researchers are developing new technologies and methods to help achieve ambitious net zero targets.
Our degrees related to sustainability and the environment:
From low-carbon computing to sustainable construction, our staff are engaged in world-changing research dedicated to combating the climate crisis. Find out more about their work in these short presentations.
Time to go on a digital diet
Professor Ana Basiri asks: how clean is our digital diet? Can we really limit emissions by sending just one fewer 'thank you' email?
Sustainable construction products
Dr Cise Unluer's research aims to contribute to a sustainable built environment through the development of innovative and functional construction products with high performance and durability.
Towards Zero-Carbon Computing
Professor Wim Vanderbauwhede explains low carbon and sustainable computing, and addresses the need for frugal computing: achieving the same results for less energy.
