Civil Engineering

Strategic Aim: Advancing the mechanics of civil and structural engineering systems within the broader context of the design, construction and operation of sustainable infrastructure and the stewardship of Earth's resources and environment.

The Civil Engineering (D) Division is led by Professor Simon Guest. The research topics explored within the Division aim to address issues, offer solutions and advance technology within the civil engineering sector. The Research Groups and Centres within the Division are the Laing O' Rourke Centre (LORC), Geotechnical and Environmental, Use Less, Structures, the Centre for Sustainable Development, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment (FIBE/CDT), the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) and Digital Roads for the Future

Division D is based across three sites: the Civil Engineering Building (7a JJ Thomson Ave, Cambridge CB3 0FA) and the Schofield Centre (High Cross, Madingley Rd, Cambridge CB3 0EF) on the West Cambridge campus and the Trumpington Street Site (Trumpington Street Cambridge CB2 1PZ) in Central Cambridge. Structures, the Laing O'Rourke Centre, CSIC, part of Geotechnical and Environmental, and Digitial Roads for the Future are based in the Civil Engineering Building on the West Cambridge site. Geotechnical and Environmental is also partly based at the Schofield Centre. Use Less, Sustainable Development and FIBE/CDT are all based at the Trumpington Street site in Central Cambridge.
