Energy saving technology on Cereb building

Research

The abundance of technology in CEREB enables students to complete innovative and unique research projects which can provide the industry with an insight into renewable and efficient technology in an urban setting.

Each individual piece of technology is equipped with state of the art meters so that data can be collected in real time from working equipment. Certain pieces of equipment can be then be manipulated so that the research can take into account changes in certain parameters.

All three partner universities are leaders in education and research of the built environment. Students are exposed to the range of technologies which the built environment needs to embrace in order to provide sustainable buildings for the future. Students have timetabled access to the Centre for modules on their related courses.

The list of possible research projects is endless and the Undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D. students from all partner universities are able to benefit from this. Academics and others interested in research are also able to access the technology and data to produce further research papers. We hope through this research that we will be able to influence the industry and policy in the surrounding issues.
