The School contributes to each of GCU’s Social Challenges - Healthy Lives, Inclusive Societies and Sustainable Environments - with a particular focus on Built Environment and Efficient Systems.

Within Efficient Systems, we explore the design, development, and evaluation of smart systems that are applied to a broad range of commercial, industrial and health applications including energy resource management, industrial processes and manufacturing, digital network infrastructures, and serious games. 

Within Built Environment, our research focus is on maximising social, economic and environmental benefit through the effective development, use, and revitalisation of the built environment and through engagement with the communities involved.
