About us

Chris Tweed

Through our research and teaching we seek to create a built environment that enhances people’s lives, without destroying the planet for future generations.

Head of School Chris Tweed

Our long-standing record of teaching excellence is reflected in the popularity of our courses and our position in key league tables. We’re ranked 4th in the UK in the Guardian University Guide, 3rd in the Complete University Guide and 39th in the QS World Rankings.

Our research spans the physical sciences, social sciences, humanities and design to foster excellence in key areas of architecture and the built environment. Our internationally recognised academics work closely with our thriving postgraduate research community on many research projects which are led by members of our research groups.

We collaborate with universities, industry and architectural practices all over the world to ensure we maximise our student learning experience and the impact of our research. We also work closely with local communities to enable the sharing of our expertise to achieve common goals.
