Sustainable Infrastructure Systems Centre for Doctoral Training

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems carries out research in the three key areas of Transport, Water and Energy at the University of Southampton. Based in the Boldrewood Innovation campus and working closely with EPSRC and Industry partners.

Recruitment to the CDT SIS has now closed.

Research in the field of Sustainable Infrastructure for Cities will continue through standard PhD projects funded by UKCRIC, industry and University of Southampton. This Centre of Doctoral Training is based in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences and includes projects relating to infrastructure in and supporting cities and the impact of urban living on the environment. 

We will train future engineers with technical interdisciplinary skills and an understanding of how to make our cities productive, sustainable, resilient and healthy places for people to live. In a training environment based in new facilities at the National Infrastructure Laboratory (University of Southampton) and working in close collaboration with industry, we will produce a cadre of well-networked engineers who will help develop the UK as an innovative, prosperous, and healthy nation.
