Introduction:

The School of the Built Environment and Architecture (BEA) is one of the largest of its kind in the UK. It is centrally located at the heart of London, UK. It brings together academic staff with expertise in Architecture, Architectural Engineering and Technology; Civil Engineering and Building Services Engineering; Construction Management and Economics; Project Management; Construction Technology; Environmental Technologies; Acoustics; Sustainable Futures and Development; Real and Estate and Property; and Health & the Built Environment; allowing it to tackle a wide range of issues associated with the built and human environments. We take a practical approach; professionally accredited and connected to industry. We offer some of London's best courses in engineering for cities, surveying, construction, architecture and design. The breadth and quality of our research and enterprise activities is widely acknowledged. Our applied research tackles real-world issues. We are the top modern university in London, UK, for world-leading and internationally excellent research and Grade Point Average in General Engineering (which includes The Built Environment and Architecture research). The School considers research to be an essential activity in the development of both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. The School maintains an appropriate and distinct range of research activity with a major feature being partnerships with industry, commerce and other academic institutions in the UK and overseas. It is firmly committed to the concept of “the environment as a multidisciplinary subject”; the style and shape of the research activities reflect this theme. Research activities in the School cover a wide range of built and natural environment areas but focus on four research themes: Construction Management, Economics and Integrated Delivery; Engineering and Building Services; Architecture and Design; Sustainability and Resilient Infrastructure and Communities. The school offers a host of postgraduate research programmes, including MPhil and Ph.D. There are circa 30 registered research students. The School also maintains strong research links with many research institutions, including, Arizona State University, University of Cape town - South Africa; Hong Kong University, and Royal Melbourne University, Australia.

Vision:

The Student Chapters objectives are: • to encourage the development of the research interests of its members • to encourage and enhance communication and exchange of research and academic work among its members. • to encourage and provide opportunities for networking among research students and to develop research leaders • to facilitate and promote joint research and academic exchange with other national and international CIB Student Chapters and the global research community. We take a practical approach; professionally accredited and connected to industry. We offer some of London's best courses in engineering for cities, surveying, construction, architecture and design. The breadth and quality of our research and enterprise activities is widely acknowledged. Our applied research tackles real-world issues. We are the top modern university in London, UK, for world-leading and internationally excellent research and Grade Point Average in General Engineering (which includes The Built Environment and Architecture research).


Programme:

The chapter’s programme aims to: • provide targeted forums for disseminating and sharing of research skills and research findings for the benefits of its members • produce a newsletter/a vehicle for the CIB Student Chapter on a regular basis (at least two per year). • establish and facilitate joint research activities between members of different CIB Student Chapters in the UK and overseas. • support CIB events by encouraging student members to attend and to submit research papers for presentation and publication at such events • actively encourage other CIB member institutes to establish their own CIB Endorsed Chapter.


Membership:

The CIB Student Chapter in the School of the Built Environment and Architecture, London South Bank University, UK, will be open to all postgraduate and research students. Members are expected: • to have a strong interest in research and innovation in the built and natural environment, and • to actively participate in the functions and events organised by the Student Chapter. The proposed CIB Student Chapter will have its own clearly established Membership rules. The rules will comply with the CIB’s Mission Statement as set out in the CIB constitution.
