Civil Engineering Research

Our research

Civil Engineering is a broadly applicable, multidisciplinary field. The School of Civil Engineering’s research is recognised around the world and supported by an expert staff and quality facilities.

The Centre for Advanced Structural Engineering (CASE) has one of largest structural engineering laboratories in the southern hemisphere. Our lab is in constant demand due to the wide range of testing machines we have available.

Sydney Centre in Geomechanics and Mining Materials (SciGEM) has expertise in the behaviour and design in many types of foundation systems, soil and rock mechanics, and also contaminant flow.

The Centre for Wind, Waves and Water was established to promote and support collaborative academic research and research sponsored by industrial partners in various fields of environmental resources.

In the field of complex systems we are on the cutting edge of research, and have extensive links with industry.

The school runs regular research seminars on current topics, and many of our publications are available for free download in PDF in the profile pages of our academics.
