The post doctoral researcher will seek to advance a recently developed interdisciplinary systems model (the Urban Systems Abstraction Hierarchy) which connects designed and ‘non-designed’ infrastructure to its intended societal and sustainability outcomes. The work is led by the EFI Centre for Future Infrastructure and will explore urban system resilience, data systems connecting engineering, social sciences, public sector and geosciences, to understand the needs of future urban infrastructure.

Engineering academics have developed a new framework to help Scotland’s affordable housing sector reach net zero carbon performance. Dr Julio Bros-Williamson is the academic lead for the Edinburgh Home Demonstrator (EHD) project, which is creating a pilot development in Granton.
Our MSc Fire Engineering Science is the latest degree offering in the University of Edinburgh’s long history of fire science and engineering education. The programme brings together classes from across different areas of fire safety with a strong core of fundamental fire science, an emphasis on experimental investigation, and with classes in numerical models and design applications. Students will also study the regulation of fire risks and how to protect buildings from the adverse effects of fire.
