Research Groups

The Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology at the University of Cambridge is a partnership between the Department of Engineering and Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge and Laing O'Rourke, the UK's largest privately owned construction company.

The Geotechnical and Environmental Group's research interests are wide, ranging from the fundamental mechanics of soils to encompass applications such as construction processes, infrastructure, environmental engineering, petroleum engineering, sustainability and earthquakes.

The research of the Structures Group covers a wide range of applications, from civil infrastructure to aerospace and to biological structures.

The Centre for Sustainable Development in the Cambridge University Engineering Department was established in 2000, following support provided by the Royal Academy of Engineering, to introduce concepts of sustainability over all our engineering courses. Our work adopts a multi-disciplinary approach and focuses on the context and complexity in which engineering products and services are delivered.
