Civil engineering covers a wide range of subjects and The University of Nottingham is recognised for its world class learning environment and excellent facilities. Research involved within civil engineering can be based around structures/Geotechnics/fluid mechanics/transportation/ GPS surveying/road materials and many other aspects.
The Division of Materials, Mechanics and Structures' research infrastructure is outstanding and in 2011/12 new capital equipment was installed for automated manufacture of composites, recycling studies for composites, geotechnical centrifuge facility, state-of-the-art microscopy and analytical testing equipment, high power material processing lasers, cutting-edge nanomaterials processing facilities and laboratories for static, cyclic and high temperature performance structural assessment. The division houses the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Gas Turbine Transmission systems and the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacture of Composite Materials.
