Glasgow Caledonian University’s commitment to the Common Good is realised in applied research which addresses three major societal challenges, enabling communities in the UK and internationally to build Inclusive Societies and live Healthy Lives in Sustainable Environments.

To best meet these societal challenges through The Institute for Sustainable Engineering and Technology Research, we focus on the research areas of urban enrivonments and efficient systems.

Research spans sensors and monitoring technologies for industrial processes and electrical power systems; advanced technologies for water treatment and environmental monitoring; process optimisation for the manufacturing industry; digital communication systems and signal processing; the application of digital systems for healthcare; the development of policy for sustainable construction; and the use of virtual reality to investigate interfacing between man and machine.
