Built Environment encourage PhD candidates to take an active role in our Department's research community, in areas currently ranging from climate change and resilience to smart cities, integrated urban infrastructure, mechanical engineering and tribology, technology, health sciences and medical engineering, society and culture, planning and architecture.
Anglia Ruskin University have a large multidisciplinary academic team ready to support you in your studies working across our research groups and Future Cities Research Network (FCRN).
FCRN brings together PhD researchers and academic, teaching and research staff from across our Department of Engineering and the Built Environment – and beyond. Our aim is to investigate and generate best practice and policy relevant evidence to understand and effectively respond to the complex urban challenges for sustainable and resilient urban futures.
- The approach FCRN takes to research is grounded in the multidisciplinary work with industry, third sector organisations and policy makers, using collaborative research methodologies that treat end users as partners in the research process and not as subjects to be studied.
- In this way the findings from our projects have immediate relevance and impact on the societal issues they are addressing.
