Civil Engineering

Strategic Aim: Advancing the design, construction, and operation of civil and structural engineering systems within the broader context of sustainable and resilient 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 four sites: the Civil Engineering Building (7a JJ Thomson Ave, Cambridge CB3 0FA), the Schofield Centre (High Cross, Madingley Rd, Cambridge CB3 0EF) and the Roger Needham Building (7 J J Thomson Avenue Cambridge CB3 0RB) 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, Digital Roads of the Future and NFRIS are based in the Civil Engineering Building. The Future Roads Programme and FIBE2 CDT are based at the Roger Needham Building. Use Less and Sustainable Development are based at the Trumpington Street site. Geotechnical and Environmental are based at the Schofield Centre.
