Our Civil Engineering research income is approaching £2m a year
Civil Engineering provides an exciting mix of research and teaching. The department is one of the top in the UK for Civil Engineering degrees, as determined by national league tables. Internationally, our Division of Civil Engineering is currently ranked in the top 200 Civil Engineering departments in the world by QS World Rankings.
The Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) was established in 1989 and has grown into a world class research Centre of Excellence. It is guided by an Advisory Committee of leading practitioners and is committed to carrying out research to the highest level. The Unit's state-of-the-art research facilities has a broad research base covering concrete science, environment, technology and construction; durability, repair and maintenance strategies; recycling/reuse of materials and sustainability issues; novel construction applications; and risk assessment and whole life cost analysis.
Electronic Engineering is another dynamic area of our School. Staff have contributed much to the advancement of engineering on the international stage, with a strong electronics research presence in key technology fields such as renewable energy, biomedical engineering, nano-electronics and laser/wireless communications. Undergraduates have the chance to be involved in this research from their second year which provides them with great experience, early on in their degree.
The Guardian League Table 2014 ranked Mechanical Engineering top in Scotland and 4th in the UK
Mechanical Engineering mixes traditional core engineering principles with emerging technologies to create truly innovative solutions to design and analyse problems. The department enters student teams in the Greenpower Corporate Challenge for electric racing cars and Mechanical Engineering students participate in Formula Student, Europe's biggest student motorsport event.
Biomedical Engineering bridges the gap between engineering and medicine. It takes the design and problem solving skills of engineering and combines them with medical and biological sciences.
Biomedical Engineering is a relatively new engineering discipline.
The Biomedical Engineering group at the University of Dundee builds on the highest standards of research, teaching and service by a cross-functional team of engineers, scientists and clinicians; it integrates a wide range of expertise available across the School of Science and Engineering, School of Medicine and Department of Medical Physics, Ninewells.
The unique interdisciplinary character of our biomedical research exploits the developments that are occurring at the interface between the biomedical and physical sciences
