The Resource Efficient Future Cities has current strengths in two streams of research:
energy use efficiency focuses on end-use energy demand by buildings and urban areas and its interactions with users
sustainable environmental development of buildings focuses on the theme of materials and construction methods.
We have substantial expertise in energy efficiency in buildings including natural ventilation and low energy cooling technologies, optimum integration of renewable and passive systems with active mechanical systems, the energy demand of urban buildings and mitigation/adaptation strategies, the use of natural, recyclable and smart materials in building construction and holistic approaches to sustainable development and infrastructure management. Investigations are carried out through a combination of field measurements and laboratory experimentation with the use of in-house and commercial software.
Careers and your future
Tailored careers support is offered to all our current PhD students and for up to 3 years after you complete your research at Brunel. We help you to actively engage in career planning and managing your personal development right from the start of your research. Our careers provision includes online advice, one to one consultations and a range of events and workshops.
In addition, where available, you may be able to undertake some paid work as we recognise that teaching and learning support duties represent an important professional and career development opportunity.
Based in Uxbridge, on the outskirts of west London, Brunel University London offers over 100 specialist postgraduate courses, which you can study both full-time and part-time. Nearly 14,000 students study at Brunel, with nearly 3,500 of those studying at postgraduate level, and 15% of their attendees are mature students.
Brunel is comprised of three colleges
