Strategic Themes

Creating sustainable integrated solutions for the provision of energy, transport, information, buildings, water and waste treatment in the context of the urban environment.

Developing modeling, simulation and analytical methods for understanding large complex systems and ensuring their resilience through new approaches to optimisation, decision-making and control that take full account of uncertainty and risk.

Applying the engineering approach to understanding biological systems and supporting innovation in healthcare, creating new knowledge, solutions for biological and medical applications, and biologically-inspired solutions elsewhere in engineering.

Significantly reducing the time from research to large-scale implementation through improved design and management of research collaborations and knowledge transfer, building on the DoEng’s world-leading research.
