PhDs in Built Environment offer doctoral students the chance to undertake interdisciplinary research in Architecture, Construction and Engineering, exploring the ways in which these subjects inform one another. Possible research topics include:
Building quality management
Civil and structural engineering
The nature of Built Environment as a study area means that there are likely to be many real-world applications resulting from your research, such as the use of concrete as a building material.
The entry requirements for a typical PhD in Built Environment usually involve a Bachelors and a Masters degree in a related subject. You’ll also need to submit a compelling research proposal detailing your study plans. Any professional experience in Built Environment or Architecture that you have will strengthen your application.
If you’re considering a part-time PhD in Built Environment, it may also be worth asking your employer if they’re happy to sponsor you.
