Water Engineering and Development


Developing knowledge and capacity in water engineering worldwide

We undertake research at a range of scales from Kolmogorov to Continental, with our work spanning the fundamental physics of water science, water chemistry and treatment, and associated management and policy issues.

Our research group is closely associated with the Water Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC), which was founded more than 45 years ago to address the issues of providing safe water and sanitation in low- and middle-income countries. It still provides education and training programmes designed for the next generation of professionals and leaders to tackle global challenges in the broad field of water engineering and development. 

The group leader is Prof. Graham Sander and our research is undertaken within four discrete themes:
