Research in Engineering at UEL is undertaken as per four research groups to build upon our areas of strength, maximise research potential of researchers and foster synergy among groups.
Connected Devices and Systems aims to develop novel devices and systems for building future environments with higher connectivity, for good health and improving quality of life.
In Innovative Materials and Construction Systems, research is undertaken for development of innovative materials and construction systems towards betterment of the current construction practice, quality of life and the environment.
In Flood Risk Monitoring and Mapping research topics include coastal and river engineering, prevention mechanisms for tsunamis, storm surges and high waves; advanced algorithms for processing survey data and flood risk management; and performance assessment of deteriorating infrastructures and flood risk management with stochastic modelling, improving reliability and optimising maintenance.
The Sustainable Urban Built Environment group carry out research into novel and innovative solutions for climate change, resources, environmental degradation.
