Group Overview

At NTEC, we evaluate the engineering, environmental and sustainable aspects of elements of road, rail, dock and airfield infrastructure.

Our laboratories undertake assessment of materials and technologies for the existing and future transport infrastructures. We are concerned with the sustainability and resilience of transportation infrastructure, the management and maintenance of the existing infrastructure asset as well as envisioning the future transport systems.

We teach undergraduate and postgraduate students and provide training courses in these topics. Our UKAS accredited laboratories offer commercial services to industry to help solve practical problems.
