built environment PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 333 built environment PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhDs in Natural and Built Environment

Our research seeks to understand the impact of social, environmental, and economic changes on society, drawing on this understanding to contribute to the better design and planning of spaces and places. Read more

The Impact of Climate Change on Timber in Construction

Construction delivery and operation accounts for 34% global final energy use and 37% energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst extracting finite resources and destroying natural habitats. Read more

Artificial Intelligence for Professional Excellence in Built Environment

This project aims to foster new multidisciplinary research into specific challenging issues in the subject field of built environment with regard to the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for excellence in professional practices. Read more

A Framework to Use Parallel Computing and Simulations for Net-Zero Built Environment

The UK was the first major economy that passed net-zero emission law. The reduction of carbon emissions in the construction industry mostly relied upon a ‘fabric first’ approach in addition to use renewables. Read more

Circular Economy Strategies in Building Environment Engineering

This research project presents a unique opportunity for individuals interested in addressing sustainability challenges within the building environment through the lens of circular economy principles. Read more

Engineered Timber Solutions for Circularity

There is a global market shift towards sustainable construction methods and correspondingly increased demand for mass timber products and systems with an emphasis on cross-laminated and glue-laminated timber forms. Read more

Approximation-Assisted Transient Vapor Compression Cycle Modeling under Fast Fluid Dynamics Simulated Built Environment

Transient simulation of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems is of dire needs. Such model serves as the digital-twin representation of the actual building thermal envelope conditions for the purposes for control optimizations as well as thermal comfort improvements. Read more

Low carbon hybrid timber-steel structures in fire

The built environment is one of the largest producers of carbon emissions, responsible for around 38% of global emissions. Hybrid timber-steel structures utilise a traditional steel frame but use Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) for floor slabs which have the potential to reduce embodied carbon in the built environment.
